Don’s Daily Devotions

Join us as we read the scriptures and a daily devotion written by Don Crisp. We pray these messages will bless us all at this time.

Starting on Monday 6th April, we will be sharing daily devotional readings, prepared for us by Don Crisp. Don will be leading us through the Gospel of John, starting this Easter time with John 13. He then moves into Paul’s Letter to the Philippians.

Day 19 – Philippians 4:1-4

Mon 1st June – Read Philippians 4:1-4 V1: Paul expresses again his love for them, his longing to see them. What delight he has in these, his “spiritual children” (“my joy”) seeing them as the fruit of his ministry, by God’s grace (“my crown”) and he calls them to ” stand firm in the Lord…

Day 18 – Philippians 3:19-21

Sat 30th May  –  Read Philippians 3:19-21 V19: In the strongest terms, he speaks of the lost condition of these false professors of faith.

Fri 29th May  –  Read Philippians 3:15-18 V15: Paul says all mature believers should think like this – with the same awareness, desire and priorities he has just spoken of. Do we, I wonder? But he is confident that if any do not see things so clearly yet, God will reveal it to them, in…

Day 16 – Philippians 3:12-14

Thurs 28th May  –  Read Philippians 3:12-14 V12: Even Paul was still a “work in progress” ( how much more are we!)

Day 15 – Philippians 3:9-11

Wed 27th May                        Read Philippians 3:9-11  V9: Now his whole life, his  very identity, is ” in Christ”. He knows he can plead no righteousness of his own, he has none, a sinner before a holy God ( Romans 3:10-12 ) The law can only condemn him, not save him. Christ is the only source…

Day 14 – Philippians 3:5-8

Tues 26th May – Read Philippians 3:5-8 V5: Paul emphasises his ” Jewish credentials “. All these false teachers sought to impose on Gentile believers, he once valued and claimed for himself, believing he would be right with God through his own works, and by his clear Jewish ancestry and identity, and his zeal as…

Day 13 – Philippians 3:1-4

Mon 25th May – Read Philippians 3:1-4 V1: Paul says ” finally”, though only half way through the letter. ( This can be a bad habit for some preachers!) His exhortation to “rejoice in the Lord”, is actually taken up again in Philippians 4:4, and what follows here appears almost as an “interruption”. Some think…

Day 12 – Philippians 2:25-30

Sat 23rd May – Read Philippians ch 2:25-30 V25: He speaks of another great example, Epaphroditus, who has come to him from the Philippian church, as their messenger and to convey a gift from them. (Clearly, at this stage of his captivity, others are allowed free access to him.) He now intends to send him back to them,…

Fri 22nd May  –  Read Philippians 2:21-24 V21: Paul compares Timothy’s genuine concern and love with others who, whatever they claim, he sees as motivated by self interest, perhaps self-esteem, to be thought well of and seen as “fine Christians” ( though we have no details of whom he speaks and why.) Certainly, he sees them…

Thurs 21st May  –  Read Philippians 2:17-20   V17-18: Though he hopes yet to be delivered and see them again, he knows this may not be God’s will. If He dies for his gospel testimony, he likens it to the OT drink offering (He does so again in 2Timothy 4:6, when his martyr’s death is indeed…
