The Principles of First Mention
You always remember your firsts. The first time you rode a bike. Your first date. Your first kiss. Your first job. Your first house. Your baby’s first word. 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 develop and grow into something more.
In this new series, Pastor Robert shares that it’s the same way with firsts in the Bible. The first time an important word or phrase is mentioned in Scripture is important because that first mention often establishes a precedent, pattern, or biblical concept that can be seen throughout the rest of the Bible. As Pastor Robert unpacks the principles of first mention, God’s Word will come alive with new hues and understanding.
During the series, you can find daily encouragement in our new devotional, Devotions Inspired by the Principles of First Mention. Follow along with your free digital copy on YouVersion or on gatewaydevotions.com. You can also join us each morning on Facebook at 7 am (CT) for prayer!
