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.

Living the Christian life is essential, but not always easy. Yet, the reason we find it so difficult is not because God has made it hard, but because we fail to do it in the manner He has prescribed. We attempt to live godly lives without God’s help. And when we do, we not only find it difficult, but impossible. We may succeed for a time, but it won’t last long and it won’t produce lasting results. In Romans 8:1-11, Paul reminds us that there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. We have been set free from the penalty of death that accompanies a life of sin. By placing our faith in Christ, we received forgiveness and stand before God as fully righteous in His eyes. But we are expected to live up to our new standing or identity. God is not demanding perfection from us in this life, but a growing awareness of our need for His Spirit’s power.
