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.

One of the many problems facing mankind since the fall has been our insatiable desire for glory. Because we were made in God’s image and were intended to reflect His glory, we ended up becoming glory grabbers. In a sense, we chose to make ourselves like God. In fact, that’s exactly what Satan said would happen if Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit – “you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.” And ever since, mankind has been trying to play god. But the only problem is, God will not share His glory with anyone. And the doctrine of sanctification does not suggest that sinful man can become like God. It teaches that, because of Christ, we can once again do what we were created to do: Reflect the glory of God.
