The Kingdom Chorus

By Kurt Selles

December 31, 2023

The beginning of a new year marks an opportunity to reflect on our lives. How am I spending my time? How could this year be better than last year? What are my priorities?

This self-reflection causes us to ask even bigger questions: what am I living for? Who am I living for?

This month we focus on one of the great themes of the New Testament: the kingdom of God. From the first chapter of the book of Matthew to the final chapter of the book of Revelation, the New Testament Scriptures reveal the true King and his kingdom. For thirty-one days we will ponder King Jesus and his kingdom. Will you live for him and join “The Kingdom Chorus”?

Bob Arbogast is the pastor of Celebration Fellowship church, a multisite prison church in Ionia, Michigan. In his spare time he plays guitar in a West Michigan blues band. He and his wife, Jan, have three adult daughters.

As you read the Today devotions this month, may you be refreshed, refocused, and renewed in God’s Word!
