5 MINUTE MORNING BIBLE STUDY
Thank you for visiting this page. The pastors at Stanwich believe being in God's Word every day is an opportunity to draw closer to the wisdom, beauty, and goodness we all desire in our lives. This devotional, even if only for 5 short minutes, is a way for you and our entire Stanwich community to draw near to our Lord and Savior. I encourage you to set a reminder on your calendar to visit this page daily or sign up to receive the daily newsletter.

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
What strengthened the hearts of the disciples after the crucifixion? The weight of the world has crashed down, leaving them emptied of hope. And then the sun rose and everything changes and they realize Jesus is alive! "The Lord has risen!" The Lord has overcome death!
Food For Thought
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
1 Corinthians 15:56-58
Perhaps the best antidote to despair is to finally realize with your whole heart what the two followers realized on the road to Emmaus: "Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?" (Luke 23:32) Have you experienced the living Christ on your own road to Emmaus?
