Spending More Time with Jesus

The following is an excerpt from Daily Thoughts for Disciples by Oswald Chambers: “It is the natural instinct of a child to imitate his mother, and when we are born again the Holy Spirit lifts this instinct into the spiritual domain and it becomes the most supernaturally natural thing for us to imitate our Lord.

Walking with God: a 10-Day Poetic Devotional

INTRODUCING OUR FIRST DEVOTIONAL We are beyond excited to be sharing our new resource with you today! Not only is this tool one that we know will encourage you in your faith - but it's one that only came about because of what the Lord is doing through the Kairos community 🙌 If you've been here for a while, you may remember that we shared a poem from one of our community members, Deb, in one of our weekly emails. We received such an incredible response from so many folks saying they were encouraged by her writing, that we asked Deb if she'd like to partner together to create a devotional for our community. Personally, we've been so inspired and touched...
