What Others Are Saying
Two hundred words for a devotion doesn’t leave much wiggle room. There’s no space for any of the filler that populates so much of what’s marketed to Christians. There’s only Jesus. Rev. Dr. Matthew Richard gets right to the point, rightly dividing Law and Gospel, leaving us with the truth of God’s Word and the comfort of His promises. For all of the places we find ourselves overwhelmed by a lack of time and an abundance of sin, these brief but incredibly pastoral devotions are a gift to the Church.
—Rev. Harrison Goodman, pastor and content executive, Higher Things
These Minute Messages take a nugget that is present in the text and make it a most valuable diamond for the day. They are like a sermon, although summed up in a few words: straightforward to the point we may be in our lives today with the Law and Gospel of God’s Word, along with a teaching to fill the day with the joy of eternity through Christ without a story or joke.
—Rev. Arie D. Bertsch, president, North Dakota District, LCMS
