Meditations for Daily Growth

Obeying the Gospel

You Never Know Who Will Be Receptive (July 24)

You Never Know Who Will Be Receptive (July 24)

We tend to see people only through the lens of their past. And unfortunately, if a person’s past is so sinful that we deem them unfit candidates for God’s grace, then we probably won’t “waste the time” it takes to present the gospel to them.

Diligently Seeking God

Particular People (July 24)

Particular People (July 24)

We should accept our particulars, and even be grateful for them. Even if we’ve made poor choices in the past, there is good work yet to be done — work that can be done best by a person who has just our set of particulars. Warts, scars, and all.

Reaching Forward

Independent Faith (July 24)

Independent Faith (July 24)

Challenging Every Person to Take God More Seriously

Devotional Meditation

Rather than thinking about God casually, meditation is a deep pondering of His truth. When we meditate devotionally, the facts about God are given more than a “passing glance.” We think about them intently and lovingly so their meaning can truly sink in.

Daily Devotional Books

Unfortunately, many of the best-selling devotionals are popular not because they produce greater devotion to God but because they give the reader a sugary “high.” They aim to make the reader feel better, but they do little to stimulate significant spiritual growth.

Devotion to God

Devotional strength must be built up by constant, disciplined practice over time. Paul reminded his young friend Timothy of this when he said, “Meditate on these things; give yourself entirely to them, that your progress may be evident to all” (1 Timothy 4:15).

DFBS 130 — God wants us to think before we act

Our deeds are often hasty and our lives end up being haphazard hodgepodges of this and that, rather than the well-constructed results of premeditation. Nowadays we truly need the biblical warning to think about what we are doing.
