Today's Reading...

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers... - Psalms 1:1

Selah: Devotions from the Psalms

Cory Mansfield and Ross Lester

“I love the Psalms. I love the rawness, the awe, the beauty, the anger, the vulnerability, the sorrow, the joy, the hope. There is nothing sterile, aloof, cool, safe, or glammed up about them, and that is what makes them useful to real people like you and me, who wrestle with real experiences of faith and doubt that exist hidden behind our “highlight reel” lives that we continually self-publish to the world on social media” (Lester, 1).

Ross Lester is the Lead Pastor of Bryanston Bible Church and the Network Director for Acts 29 Southern Africa. In his new book, Selah: Devotions from the Psalms for Those Who Struggle with Devotion, Ross gives us 150 devotions, corresponding to each of the 150 Psalms. His writing emulates the Psalms in that he is real and raw with his insight and emotions. As Ross states in the book, “This little book is more of a look into what my devotion journal might look like than it is an exegetical study” (Lester, 1).
