Daily Devotional Thoughts

Just over three years ago, I started this blog. Follow this link to see the original post: It’s safe to say that I’ve been consistently inconsistent in posting on this here blog—this is only the 19th post. That’s just about six posts each year. Not exactly the sort of regular reading that keeps people coming back!

Recently, however, while speaking with a good friend of mine I was motivated to find a away to use this blog as an avenue for more regular communication with the good folks of Mt. Calvary. I asked the Board of Education, along with a few other trusted colleagues, to serve as “guinea pigs” as I worked out a format for these “Daily Devotional Thoughts.” I want to thank those of you who offered feedback, and helped me find a format that I pray is helpful for all who will read these thoughts.

It is my hope and prayer that these devotional thoughts will clearly set forth our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ—and the hope we have in Him. I encourage readers to ask questions, to engage in discussion, and to offer your own thoughts about the daily readings.

You can expect a devotional thought to be posted by noon (sorry about today’s late post!) Monday – Friday. Each day will have a unique emphasis:

Monday—For the Christian Family

Tuesday—From the Psalms

Wednesday—New Testament

Thursday—Old Testament

Friday—From the Lutheran Confessions, Luther, or one of the Church Fathers

Happy reading, and may our time in the Word produce the fruit of faith!

Peace in Christ
