Deep Six Study and Daily Devotional
Every preacher's dream is to see the truth he preaches lived out in the lives of those he preaches to and certainly this is as it should be. This dream is rooted in our Heavenly Father's desire that there would never be unlived truth in the lives of His people. Our church is dedicated to the purpose of helping people Live Fully, and one way we do that is to encourage a deeper study of the truth they hear on Sundays throughout the other six days of the week. Accordingly, each week we provide (1) the Deep Six Study and (2) the Daily Devotional.
(1) Deep Six Study - accessed via "Discussion Notes" button located under the video message on the "Watch" page of the website. Printed copies also available at the Connect Desk in the church lobby. Note: the Deep Six Study will return when Small Groups begin again in September.
(2) Daily Devotional - Available online Monday through Saturday on a daily basis, accessed via the "Daily Devotional" button at the bottom of the "Watch" page (www.capecodchurch.com/daily). The devotions build on and expand from the Sunday message. It is our desire, our hope, and our prayer for this devotional section to be a useful Spiritual Life tool that our church family can benefit from throughout the year. Each day's devotional will typically consist of Scripture connected with the message, a commentary, and a prayer response. We trust the Daily Devotional will assist you as you seek to live out the truth of God's word on a daily basis.
The SPECS acronym from Sunday's message helps us see the Scriptural applications we are being called to respond to and live out in our daily lives. We encourage you to use the Scripture passages in this week's Devotional materials as opportunities for trying out the SPECS approach to applying and living our God's Word. The Devotionals for Thursday, Friday, Saturday will give you specific passages of Scripture for using SPECS and for putting into place the "Core" understanding with it's three related perspectives from the Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday Devotionals.
