Ethos Church is not just a place where we gather on Sundays. We desire to be a community of people who are devoted to learning and growing through studying the scripture and dedicated prayer time throughout our weeks. One thing we know is that God desires a relationship with us and we hope that these resources will be the added help you are looking for when striving to deepen that relationship with God.
God isn’t interested in us practicing religion; instead, He desires a relationship with us.
The Book of Galatians
Grace is the unmerited, undeserved, and unearned favor and kindness of God. God gave humanity grace by giving His Son, Jesus, who was a once-and-for-all sacrifice for the sins of humanity. This is favor to undeserving people. This is grace. Yet, the church of Galatia was departing from the grace of God and instead reverting back to a law that would keep them in bondage.

Axioms For Life Devotional
The Book of James was written to a church that was scattered and couldn’t meet all together due to circumstances beyond their control. We’re still experiencing a similar separation as a church today. In difficult times like these, trials and temptations are inevitable, but God will empower us to persevere as we live out our faith and grow spiritually mature.
The word advent actually comes from the Latin adventus, which simply means “arrival.” Advent is the coming, the arrival, of the presence of God Himself— God with us. For hundreds of years, followers of Jesus from a wide variety of church traditions around the world have set aside the four weeks leading up to Christmas as a meaningful season of celebration and anticipation. That’s what we’re up to here.
This devotional is designed as a companion to help you walk through the four chapters of Philippians. We hope you’ll utilize this guide as a 4-week study alongside our unified scripture reading plan: read the same chapter all the way through Monday-Friday (i.e. Read Philippians Chapter 1, each day, for the first week. Then move to Chapter 2 for the second week, etc…). Although you will be reading the entire chapter, daily questions and reflections will be centered on those verses you see in bold within this guide.
Beyond Blessed Devotional
The blessed life isn't about a blessed wallet. It is far better than that. It is learning to recognize everything we have has been given to us by God. In this devotional we will learn to become better stewards of our relationships, resources, and God's presence which consequently will lead to greater joy and peace. Stewardship: “The careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care.”
