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.

Thurs 11th June – James 1:16-18

Thurs 11th June  –  Read James 1:16-18 V16:  This warning against being deceived in the context here is probably by the tempter’s wiles. Perhaps it goes back to James 1:13 – being tempted to think God is tempting us and thinking hard thoughts of Him: V17:  God is the source and giver of all that…

Day 24 – Philippians 4:20-23

Sat 6th June   –  Read Philippians 4:20-23 V20:  We could easily “skim over” these closing verses, but they continue to express before God Paul’s heartfelt commitment to, and love for these Philippian Christians.
