Welcome to St Matt’s Daily! It’s important to our Christian lift to reset and re-centre around God’s word each day, and The Daily aims to help you do just that by providing quality, accessible content in your inbox. Take a few minutes each day to work your way through the devotional by following these steps:

1. Read the passage carefully.
2. Think through the passage - you can discuss it as a family or take notes using the questions to guide you.
3. Pray. Thank and/or ask God for something from the passage.
4. Practise. Read the article and think about how you can apply it to better serve Jesus and his people.
5. If there’s a podcast, listen to be encouraged in living for Jesus.

Happy reading, everyone!
 
READ
Romans 1:1-7

1 Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God— the gospel he promised beforehand through his prophets in the Holy Scriptures regarding his Son, who as to his earthly life was a descendant of David, and who through the Spirit of holiness was appointed the Son of God in power by his resurrection from the dead: Jesus Christ our Lord. Through him we received grace and apostleship to call all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith for his name’s sake. And you also are among those Gentiles who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.

To all in Rome who are loved by God and called to be his holy people:

Grace and peace to you from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

 
THINK
  • What does Paul highlight about Jesus?
  • Do I hide my faith from my non-Christian friends?
  • How can I wear the gospel as a badge of honour?
PRAY
  • Thank God for your church family
  • Pray that you'd wear the gospel as a badge of honour around everyone
