Devotion – Radical Love

This week for Trademark we are looking at Radical Love. True love is not just a feeling or emotion; according to Jesus, true love is when we lay our lives down for others. Once we have experienced the deep love that Jesus has for us, we must be moved to action for others. When we…

Devotion – Love and Lordship

With the students this week we looked at three different camps that Christians find themselves in:  Camp 1 – Legalism: Rule keeping. Trying to get God’s approval through works. Holding fast to dead traditions.  Camp 2 – Licentious: Jesus is a supplement to my life. I am enslaved to my own passions. I do what…

Devotion – The Word Became Man

Today we will be talking about a real and lasting relationship with Jesus because He is the only One that can fill and satisfy the void in our hearts and lives. I want to simply look at John 1:1-5. I do not want to go into too much detail with the scripture; I encourage you…

Devotion – Radical devotion

When I read the scriptures and in particular the New Testament and read of Paul’s life and work, I am really intimidated. The things he went through, the things he experienced, the huge and ongoing struggle against so many things, physical and emotional, reputational, and personal. I don’t know if I want his life. I…

Devotion – The Food of Life

The reason we have this deep desire to be devoted to something is because God placed it in us. He didn’t design us to walk around aimlessly; His intention for us was to be His ambassadors wherever we go. This was the case in the Garden, and it is still the case today. He placed…

Devotion – Radical Devotion

This week we kick off with Radical Devotion. Last week we saw that the way we think impacts the course of our life. But the goal is not to just think on God’s level; the goal is to walk on His level too. He promises us abundant life if we believe in Him, if we…

Devotion – Lord in the Storm

This morning we meditate on Psalm 29. A beautiful song of simple praise and acknowledgement of God’s Glory. It describes the strength of a storm and understands it as the voice and power of God. In so doing it repeats the name of the LORD 18 times and uses the phrase “the voice of the…

Devotion – Think Radically

Today in Trademark Month, we will be introducing the idea of thinking radically. From our previous devotions we know and acknowledge that the word radical comes from the word ‘root’. My hope for our devotion time today is to focus the root of our thinking on things above. For our reading we turn to Romans…

Devotion – Meditate on the Truth

As we saw yesterday, our minds develop pathways of thinking. We can liken this to roads. Some pathways are bike trails or dirt roads, while others are 5-lane highways. The more we think a certain way or the more we think about certain things, the greater the road in our mind becomes. This is true…

Devotion – Unparalleled Devotion

As we explore this idea of being radical, we must admit that we all have a deep desire for purpose and meaning. Not only do high school students grapple with this, but people of all ages are confronted, at some point in their life, with the question: why am I on this Earth?  In preparing…
