Devotionary is a new podcast that is designed to make the Bible accessible and applicable to everyday life. It combines the inspiration of a daily devotional and the insights of a commentary, but in language that is easy-to-understand. We will be working our way through the entire Bible offering a chapter-by-chapter overview of each book. The goal is to give you a solid understanding of the Bible’s overarching and unified message of redemption. We hope you enjoy.

Darkness. Sometimes it can be palpable, almost as if you can touch it. And when it comes to spiritual darkness, there is a very real and tangible aspect to it. Living in the darkness of sin can become a comfortable place. We can find ourselves believing that our sins remain out of sight and hidden from God’s view. The darkness becomes a place where we feel unexposed and our true condition, undetected. But God is all about exposing the darkness of sin in the lives of men. And in Isaiah 9:1-7, He informs the people of Judah, who were living in distress and darkness, that a light was going to dawn. The spiritual night of their circumstances was going to be broken by the dawn of a new day. God was going to do something new. He was going to shine a bright light into the darkened corners and hidden recesses of His chosen people, exposing their true spiritual condition and providing them with a means of being restored to a right relationship with Him. In spite of all that these stubborn and rebellious people had done to offend Him, God was going to show them His grace and mercy, redeeming them even in their unredeemable state.
