Seize the Moment: New Testament Devotions for Today

The uniqueness of Seize the Moment is that this book is the direct product of real pastoral ministry to God’s people during one of the most difficult times of local church ministry! I wrote a devotion on every chapter of the New Testament to comfort the congregation as we walked through the COVID-19 pandemic. I disciplined myself during the quarantine to rise early, read God’s Word, pray through it, and then pray to God asking Him what would edify and encourage His people at such a time as this. That is what you are holding in your hand when you hold this book—a fresh word from God for His Church, today!

Dr. Jerry D. Ingalls
My family has been called by God to live and serve in New Castle, Indiana since January 2010. By God’s grace and through the provision of the Holy Spirit, I am an ordained minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ in the American Baptist Churches of the United States of America (ABC-USA). My educational journey includes the following degrees: Doctor of Ministry in Pastoral Studies from Grace Theological Seminary (2020); Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary (2008); Master of Science in Counseling and Student Development from the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University (2000); and Bachelor of Science in Human Factors Engineering from the United States Military Academy at West Point (1996). I have had the honor of serving in two ABC churches in pastoral ministry since 2003. Throughout this journey, I am thankful to have completed the US Army Chaplains Course (2007) and Emergency Medical Ministry Course (2008), as well as training through the International Leadership Institute (2009) and Wabash Pastoral Leadership Program (2014). Prior to that I honorably served in the US Army as an Infantry Officer with assignments in the 82nd Airborne Division and the US Army’s World Class Athlete Program, with awards such as the US Army Ranger Tab, Airborne and Air Assault Wings, as well as the coveted Expert Infantryman Badge. It is my greatest privilege to be married to my beloved bride since 1999 through which God has generously blessed us with three wonderful children. We are committed to homeschooling our children, loving one another well, and living simply according to the grace God gives us daily. I enjoy trail running, backcountry hiking, and reading. Above all, I am a yokefellow of Jesus Christ and authentically desire to do all for the glory of God (Matthew 11:28-30).
