In the kingdom of God, we find a culture different from that of our world. We are often taught to be self-made, pull ourselves up by our boot straps, and that it’s the survival of the fittest. God’s kingdom turns these principles on their head. We are encouraged to wait, trust, and receive from our God who supplies for our every need. Does your life mimic one of trust and waiting? One of open hands and thankfulness? Today as we move forward in our week of God being our Father we’ll look at his provisional nature. As we learn of God’s intentions to meet our every need, open your heart today to trust in this God who’s our Provider.

Reimagine what love looks like
Jesus summed up our purpose with two statements: love God and love people. Love is at the center of our Christian faith, but in this season of COVID-19, it can be more difficult than ever to experience it, much less live it out.
This is why we are launching volume 5 of our First15 Devotional Series, Love.
Within this 4-week journey, you will:
- Learn how to stand firm on God’s love in every circumstance.
- Receive lasting comfort in the goodness of God’s immense love for you.
- Find ways to love others out of the overflow of God’s love for you, even from a distance.
- Watch your faith come alive as you love God in word and deed.
