The Chapel Quotes

True rest and being refilled is found in the Lord. You will find real strength and rest by going to Jesus not away from Him. There is an aspect when it comes to parenting when it is so important to be able to protect our children, but it is equally important to prepare them for release. We live in a very dangerous, evil and fallen world and our children and grandchildren are very fragile. It’s important to parent our children that leads to a release, but most importantly to develop their relationship with God. Releasing them means we are trusting in God. One of the most loving transitions you can make as a parent is to go from protector to preparer. The best way to prepare our kids is to cultivate in them a deep relationship with God, and to inspire them to pursue their world-changing destiny. Our mission here at The Chapel is to help people believe, grow, serve and to change their world. That is God’s will for each and every one of us.

Devotion 05/12/2024
Our Devotion: “Quiet Testimony” is by Micah M. Hancock of Morton, Illinois who studied professional writing at Taylor University in Upland, Indiana.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: “This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” John 15:12

You have met these people before. They open the door for you. They invite you for dinner. They pay for lunch even though it is your turn. Everyday these people live a testimony louder than words. It is their quiet smiles and their small actions that pronounce Christ’s love to the world. Are they famous communicators or great missionaries? No, they are reflections of Christ to the people He came to save. Are you one of them?

Loving others relentlessly does not require changing our schedules or our lifestyles. It only calls for a change in our attitudes. When I decide to treat others as I want to be treated, I take the first steps toward loving them. I choose to be patient with someone, to be kind to someone, to rejoice with someone. On one of Jesus’ last days, He gave his disciples a final commandant: “Love one another.” Our Savior knew that a life of love would be the boldest testimony his disciples could carry.

PRAYER: Lord, let me love in the little things. Give me insight for how to care for others. Amen.

Jesus the Hero: A Guided Literary Study of the Gospels (Book 4 of Reading the Bible as Literature series) 
by Leland Ryken 
Weaver Book Company, PB, 136 pages

Is it all right to see the Bible as literature? If so, what does that mean? Wheaton University professor Leland Ryken addresses those questions in his 6-book series “Reading the Bible as Literature.” In this volume, Ryken explains how the New Testament writers used literary techniques to compose the Gospels, helping readers appreciate the amazing depth and complexity of the Gospel story.

As with many writers who are also public speakers, the author restates key phrases and concepts in each chapter, which can be distracting at first. However, once readers move past that, they will discover many excellent insights on literature and the Gospels. Ryken explains literary elements in language anyone can understand, and then draws clear connections to Scripture passages. He also successfully shows readers that “literature” does not always mean “fiction,” giving them freedom to appreciate the Gospels’ literary elements (parables, anecdotes, illustrations, similes, metaphors) and still view them as truth. This book will help readers realize that the Gospels are more than just theological guidebooks: they also are moving stories by or about Christ.

This book would be helpful to Christians struggling to understand the Gospels and to storytellers and church leaders seeking to learn about the Bible’s literary elements as a way of improving sermons or lessons. Each chapter quotes or references Scripture, discusses literary principles readers can apply when studying Scripture, and outlines practice activities whereby readers can make immediate use of those principles. This structure makes the book ideal for personal Bible study time.
