Reclaiming Our Christ-Centered Lutheran Devotional Heritage

Instructor: Richard Gurgel

Approaching our devotional life as a demand to fulfill (as if we are doing God some kind of favor) quickly leads to personal prayer and study of the Word becoming another burdensome “to do” on an already over-burdened schedule. But when we recognize our devotional life primarily as a gift of the gospel, we can find the joy and delight (and the release of burdens) that comes from being amazed day after day by the beauty of how graciously devoted God is to us! That understanding is at the heart of our Lutheran devotional heritage. The twin goals of this course are 1) to help each course participant to find greater delight in his Savior’s devotion to him in the midst of his personal time in Word and prayer and 2) to develop a concrete plan for how to put that blessing to work during his week.
