The Chapel Quotes

Sin is the spirit in every one of us that wants us to be in charge of our own life, a spirit of independence and rebellion against God. There is a power struggle, we want to be God of our own life. Have we moved from salvation by works to salvation by grace? Do you live with a daily deep gratitude toward Jesus for what He has done for you? God’s goal for our life is not simply that we go to heaven when we die but to transform us into the image of His Son, to make us more like Jesus in this life in the way that we live and love. God doesn’t just forgive you of your sins, He infuses you with brand new life, and puts in you a new heart that desires to serve God and to live for Him. Have you offered the whole of your life back to Him as a living sacrifice? Surrender is the foundation of the spiritual life, it ‘s the secret of the Christian life. Christ didn’t just come to die for the penalty of your sins, but He came to break the power of sin in your life. True worship isn’t just singing songs, it’s giving your whole life back to God.

Devotion 04/14/2024
Our Devotion: “Selfless Love” is by Kyla L. Sele of Portland, Oregon who studied professional writing at Taylor University.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Philippians 2:1-4 (NIV)

When I was five, my mom took me shopping to buy my brother a birthday present.  He was turning three and I was determined to give him the best gift I could find. When we got to the store I got distracted by all the pretty things waiting for me in the aisles, and I almost completely forgot about my brother.  Finally, I tried to convince my mom that what he really needed was a Cinderella coloring book. She raised her eyebrow skeptically and asked if I was thinking of my brother or myself. 

All too often, we find that our supposed good intentions are motivated by selfishness. In our self-centered culture we find it difficult to shift our focus continually from ourselves to those around us. Yet, God asks us to put others’ needs before ours, and when we remember to do this, we experience the joy of serving others.  When I saw how happy my brother was pushing around the racecar I bought him, I no longer felt sad about my coloring book.

PRAYER:  God, thank you very much for giving us the ability to care for each other, and I pray that we would remember to put others before ourselves just as your son Jesus did during His time on earth; in Your name I pray, Amen.

Book Review 04/10/2024
This Book Review is by Carson Jacobs, a Professional Writing Major at Taylor University.

SWIPE RIGHT: The Life-and-Death Power of Sex and Romance 
by Levi Lusko 
Thomas Nelson, PB, 256 pages

Swipe Right is a book full of relationship advice for practically anyone. The only group excluded in this is younger children because the author does discuss the subject of sex in a straight forward manner. One look at its cover or the title may drive adults or individuals who are already married away, but this book offers advice for all. It warns of the danger involved when initiating physical relationships outside of marriage, and just how powerful the forces of love, sex, and romance are. The author offers several alternatives to combat the intrinsic urge for instant gratification and says that: “Now yells louder, but later lasts longer.” This book isn’t just about physical relationship advice, whether current or in the future; it also presents several segments of advice applicable in multiple areas of life. Included in the back is a valuable guide with bullet points that allow the readers easily to find the topic they are looking for.

Regarding the quality of the writing; it’s pleasant and not entirely commonplace. The author uses numerous examples and analogies, making it easier to connect with and understand his ideas. However, the sheer volume of said written images tends to cause slight distractions. The lessons are enjoyable and even sometimes amusing, but the amount crammed into the first few chapters can cause the reader to lose sight of what is actually being discussed. Outside of that one, minor flaw, the overall writing style is fun and brandishes a conversational cadence.

 This book’s guidance and advice comes from a Christian perspective. It is prone to step on more than a few toes, especially about such a sensitive topic, but that doesn’t reduce its worthiness to be read and understood. The wisdom contained within the pages deals quite a mental punch, increasing the book’s readability. It might be the guidebook to developing healthy relationships we’ve all been waiting for. 

The themes explored in this help book are all derived from the Bible and how it can be used to answer difficult relationship questions. At the very least, Lusko uses quantitative data found to aid his perspective from the standpoint of his own Christian beliefs. Therefore, with such a sensitive subject, it would be very easy for this book to provoke anger and indignation rather than thought among certain readers.
