Devotions Inspired by the Principles of First Mention

You always remember your firsts. The first time you rode a bike. Your first date. Your first job. The reason we remember our firsts is because they’re significant. They’re the beginning of what is to come, and each one has the potential to grow into something more.

It’s the same way with firsts in the Bible. The first time an important word or phrase is mentioned in Scripture often establishes a pattern that can be seen throughout the rest of the Bible. In our new devotional, Devotions Inspired by the Principles of First Mention, you’ll explore the principles God set in His Word from the beginning.

Pick up a hard copy of the devotional at any of our campuses during weekend services January 9–10. You can also read or listen to the devotional online at or on the YouVersion Bible App (available in English and Spanish online).

During our January 9–10 weekend services, Pastor Robert is starting a new sermon series that coincides with this devotional. So join us, starting that weekend, as we read through the devotional as a church! From January 10 through 30, you can also join us each morning on Facebook at 7 am (CT) for prayer!

Our prayer is that God’s Word comes to life in new ways as you read each of the 21 devotions and that you feel refreshed and encouraged for the days ahead.
