The Chapel Quotes

We get stuck in a rhythm and it’s hard to break out of our routine, out of our comfort zone. It can be hard to adopt a new way of thinking. There is nothing we can do to counterbalance the sin our lives, it is by faith alone in Christ that we are made right with God. Grace + Anything is Nothing, but Grace + Nothing is Everything.”

“The law served two purposes, it was regulatory, and it was revelatory. It’s the unchanging, objective morality, the heart of God’s law that continues in the way we should live. The things we do matter. Christ did not set us free from the slavery of the law only to turn back to it. Christ did not set us free from the demands of perfection only to return to the demands of a false Gospel others place on us. We have freedom from unnecessary burdens that others place on us. We have freedom in Christ.

Devotion 04/14/2024
Our Devotion: “Selfless Love” is by Kyla L. Sele of Portland, Oregon who studied professional writing at Taylor University.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:1-4 (NIV)

When I was five, my mom took me shopping to buy my brother a birthday present.  He was turning three and I was determined to give him the best gift I could find. When we got to the store I got distracted by all the pretty things waiting for me in the aisles, and I almost completely forgot about my brother.  Finally, I tried to convince my mom that what he really needed was a Cinderella coloring book. She raised her eyebrow skeptically and asked if I was thinking of my brother or myself. 

All too often, we find that our supposed good intentions are motivated by selfishness. In our self-centered culture we find it difficult to shift our focus continually from ourselves to those around us. Yet, God asks us to put others’ needs before ours, and when we remember to do this, we experience the joy of serving others.  When I saw how happy my brother was pushing around the racecar I bought him, I no longer felt sad about my coloring book.

PRAYER:  God, thank you very much for giving us the ability to care for each other, and I pray that we would remember to put others before ourselves just as your son Jesus did during His time on earth; in Your name I pray, Amen.

Rebellious Parenting: Daring to Break the Rules So Your Child Can Thrive 
by Carrie Blackaby and Richard Blackaby 
Elevate Faith, PB, 383 pages

As a mother and repeat book reviewer, I’ve read more than a couple of parenting books. Rebellious Parenting by Carrie and Richard Blackaby is not your ordinary parenting textbook. It is much more.

Using a tag-team format, father and daughter take turns discussing each topic from each one’s unique perspective, telling real-life stories from their own lives. According to the Blackabys, the goal of parenting is not simply to teach children wrong from right, but to teach them to want to do right.   A quote from page 200 serves as a great example of the theme of the book: “It’s not enough to teach your children to say nice things. You want them to develop into thoughtful people who do nice things.”

The book chapters cover the usual parenting topics, but the content is as engaging as the chapter titles: Land of the Free, Home of the Clones and Well-Mannered Little Monsters are just two of more than twelve well-written, engaging and informative chapters.

One thread running through the book is that we should guard against a parenting style based on lists of rigid rules. Christ came to give us abundant life! If we fail to show our children the joy of living in Christ, of cherishing the relationship we have with Him, being a Christian can seem, to our children, more like a burden than a gift.

Parents with children of any age, as well as grandparents and prospective parents will benefit from this book. Also, it is a good resource for church children’s ministers and youth leaders.
