Guarding and proclaiming the unchanging truth in a changing world


Dear Subscriber,

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we are unable to continue the weekday Lift Up Your Heart devotionals.

It is our hope that in the future we may be able to resume providing the devotional, or at least, have a series at particular points in the Anglican Liturgical Calendar.

As you will appreciate there has been considerable time and effort involved in producing the devotionals thus far.

Much of that work has been done voluntarily and we want to thank our writers, recorders and translators for providing such a wonderful service over the course of these past months.

We continue to pray that the devotions will have caused you to regularly turn to the Scriptures and seek the counsel of our great God for your daily life.

The Lord be with you.

I once read a book produced for a charity called ‘My God’. It was a series of short responses by various celebrities talking about who they thought God was. The book was a mix of the occasional...

This is a majestic and memorable beginning to the Gospel. It introduces a title for Jesus that is unique to John’s Gospel. The Word is a title that speaks volumes for John’s understanding of Jesus....

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do men light a lamp only to put it under a bushel basket; they put it on a stand where it gives light to all in the house.

Let us sing "Alleluia" here below while we are anxious, so that we may sing it one day there above when we are freed for care. Why are we troubled here? Do you not expect me to be troubled when I...

 Sing to the Lord a new song, his praise in the assembly of the saints. We are told to sing to the Lord a new song.  A new man knows a new song. A song is a thing of joy and if we think carefully...

God's splendor is the source of life; those who see him share his life. Because he was beyond the reach of man's mind, incomprehensible and invisible, he made himself visible, intelligible and...

There is one God, who by the Word and Wisdom created and arranged all things. But God’s Word is our Lord Jesus Christ, who in these last times was made a man among men, that he might join the end to...

Bodily health is a good thing, but what is truly blessed is not only to know how to keep one’s health but actually to be healthy. If someone praises health but then goes and eats food that makes him...
