God Changes Jacob’s Name | Ep. 037

At one time, Jacob may have thought life was all about him, but God reminds him it’s about the people - His people, Israel. And God promises to be their God, and protect and save them! We see this transition in Genesis of it no longer being about Jacob, but about God's people. Bible Reading Our Bible reading for our devotion is from Genesis 35:1-14 as we read how God changes Jacob's name and confirms what He previously promised to Adam and Abraham and Isaac. This Promise He makes to Israel,...


Esau Shows Jacob Mercy | Ep. 036

Showing someone mercy when they have wronged you can be very challenging. When someone is unkind to you, it's only natural to be mean back to them. Except, that's not how God wants us to treat others! Jesus tells us to love one another, as He loved us. We don't deserve His love and kindness, but that's why God is merciful - He shows us compassion even though we've sinned against Him. In our devotion, we see how Esau showed compassion and was merciful to Jacob, forgiving him of all the...


Epiphany: Simeon Sees the Light of the World | Ep. 035

The word epiphany has a number of different meanings that are closely related. It can mean a manifestation, an appearance, a shining light. And that's exactly what Simeon saw as he held the Promised Messiah in his arms. Simeon had been promised by God that he wouldn't die until he laid eyes on the Christ - and on that day Mary and Joseph brought Jesus to the temple, that promise was fulfilled. The Light of the World had been born! Bible Reading Our Bible story is from Luke 2:22-33. It tells...


Children’s Christmas Program | Ep. 034

On this very special episode, we present our first children's Christmas program. A number of young guests join me and Ms. Baker as we read the Christmas story from the book of Luke, sing Christmas carols, and share heartfelt messages about the Good News of Jesus' birth. While some churches might still be able to have their traditional Christmas programs, many have had to cancel their church services this year. We pray that this children's Christmas program will fill your hearts with the joy...


Advent Devotion: The Promised Child Is Born | Ep. 033

We find ourselves rejoicing with the angels upon the birth of the Promised Child - "Glory to the newborn king!" In the fourth week of Advent, Christmas is just a few short days away as we celebrate God's Son taking on human form and becoming a baby, born in a lowly place among the animals. In our advent devotion today, we are going to talk about why it was necessary for Jesus to come to earth and live as one of us. Bible Readings Our Bible readings are from Isaiah 60:1-2, one of the...


Jacob Wrestles with God | Ep. 032

God chooses who He allows to see Him and in the Bible, not that many people actually came face to face with God. In fact, to look upon the face of God usually meant death for that person! But Jacob survived a wrestling match in the dark of night, and it was through faith and God’s merciful blessing that he lived.

Advent Series: Mary, the Chosen Mother of Jesus | Ep. 031

The angel Gabriel visits Mary and makes the announcement of Jesus Christ's incarnation, changing Mary's life in an instant. God blesses and chooses Mary to be the mother of His Son. It was not because of Mary’s blessedness that she received God’s favor, but rather because of God’s favor, she was blessed. By grace, God chose Mary to give birth to His Son – and Mary believed that Word. Please prayerfully consider supporting our ministry at . Your...


Facing the Past: Jacob Fears Esau | Ep. 030

Jacob heads back home to Canaan after serving Laban for 20 years. But as he nears the prospect of meeting his brother Esau again, he is filled with fear over how his brother will react after all these years. Jacon and Esau didn't treat each other with love n their younger days, and we can learn from their example how NOT to treat one another. Be sure to print out the coloring page and activity sheet for our devotion on our website:...


Advent Series: Joseph, The Adopted Father | Ep. 029

God picked Joseph to be Jesus’ adopted father. Joseph came from the house of David, which would fulfill the many prophecies about the Messiah coming from the house of Judah. Jesus would need an earthly father to care for Him, to love and protect Him, and to teach Him. In the same way that Jesus was the adopted son of Joseph, we too are the adopted children of God through faith. Show Notes: Reference from "Joseph the Father" by Pastor Edward Naumann.


Jacob Is Deceived By Laban | Ep. 028

Deception and lying to one another is not how God wants us to treat each other. These are sinful actions, that end up hurting people. That's what happened when Laban tricked Jacob into marrying his eldest daughter Leah, when Rachel was the daughter Jacob loved. The trickster is now tricked, having his sin come back to him.

His gift of salvation is given to us freely by His grace and mercy and NOT by anything we sinners have done! Find the coloring page and activity sheet for this week's devotion at...


A Wife for Isaac | Ep. 020
