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.

Union with Christ. It’s a comforting idea, but rather difficult to get our heads around. It has a religious-sounding ring to it that can often end up producing more sizzle than steak. For all the verses that speak about the Christian being united with Christ and Christ indwelling the believer, we sometimes find ourselves wondering just what all the talk is about. When we read the words of the apostle Paul: “Christ in you, the hope of glory,” we can easily find ourselves questioning whether Christ has vacated the premises. His presence seems difficult to discern. And, far too often, the glory His presence is supposed to ensure, seems in short supply. But one of the amazing things the doctrine of sanctification guarantees is our unbroken union with Christ, made possible through the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit.
