  • Experiencing Life Today: 365 Day Devotional

    If you were asked to describe your life right now, would you say it's a ho-hum, barely-make-it-through-the-day kind of life? Or the abounding, overflowing, deeply rich and satisfying LIFE of Christ living through you? That's what God wants for you, and it's why Pete Briscoe wrote the Experiencing Life Today, a 365-day devotional. 

  • Trust for today

    Jesus’s invitation is clear throughout the Bible: Trust Me, and trust those I’ve put in your life. Trust is vital in our families, communities, businesses, churches, and daily life, yet many of us struggle with trusting other people and even God Himself. Trust is what frees us to experience God's grace and enjoy the life He has for us. This 365 day devotional invites you to experience trust each day.

  • Rest of the Gospel

    “Do I have life ‘more abundant’?” That’s a question millions of Christians have asked down through the ages. Dan Stone asked that question during a time of spiritual frustration in his own life and God answered by showing Dan he had been living only a part of the gospel message. Dan’s search led him to discover the truth of “Christ in you” as “the rest of the gospel” that most Christians overlook.

  • The Cross Worked

    YOU WILL BE TREATED LIKE JESUS ON THE DAY OF JUDGMENT! That is exactly what the entire New Testament is shouting to believers. There will be no fear, no shame, and no guilt on the Day of Judgment. Instead, we can have confidence on the Day of Judgment because we are totally forgiven and just like Jesus. 

  • Union with Christ

    If you are a Christian, the Bible says that Christ has united his life to yours, that you are now in Christ and Christ is in you. This almost unfathomable truth is the central theme of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation. Yet few Christians today experience or enjoy this reality. Union with Christ reveals the transformational power of this ancient doctrine while addressing the basic questions of the human heart.

  • God's Astounding Opinion of You

    Many people would be surprised to learn that God’s view of them is much greater than their own. Ralph Harris, founder and President of LifeCourse Ministries, leads readers to experience a deeply satisfying, joyful relationship with Christ as they embrace what God thinks of them that they are holy, righteous, blameless, and lovable.

  • Christ Our Life

    Did you know that you were created with a spirit to contain the very life of God? Go has put Christ in you to live His life through you. He alls this the Christian life. In CHRIST OUR LIFE you will be challenged to give up your struggles to live the Christian life and experience the incomparable joy and adventure of having Christ as your life.

  • Grace Walk

    Christian walk: either running around trying to perform to be acceptable to God--or thinking they've failed Him again and wondering if they'll ever measure up. Living the grace walk gets Christians off this religious roller coaster. Using his own journey from legalism into grace, Steve McVey illustrates the foundational, biblical truths of who believers are in Jesus Christ and how they can let Him live His life through them each day.
