Meditations for Daily Growth

Obeying the Gospel

The Washing of Water with the Word (October 4)

The Washing of Water with the Word (October 4)

Traces of God (October 4)

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).
