Meditations for Daily Growth
Obeying the Gospel
Come, One and All (March 31)
Revelation 22:17 invites us to drink of the “water of life” in eternity. But only in the here and now can we accept God’s invitation. When this life is over, it will be too late for us to decide that, yes, we would like to enjoy the water of life.
Diligently Seeking God
The Beauty of Holiness (March 31)
The human spirit was created to thrive on God’s beauty. When we long for God and reach for Him, when we devote ourselves with a whole heart to showing forth His goodness, we come closer to a beauty that was meant to surround us and delight us.
God, the Perfectly Faithful (March 31)
Only God can be a perfect source of confidence, and it’s sinful to try to make anyone else fill the role that He alone was meant to fill. He is infallibly trustworthy. We may “commit [our] souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.”
Commendation (March 31)
We are more vocal about our displeasures than about our delights. But if we have to criticize, shouldn’t we keep that as private as possible? And when we have the opportunity to commend someone, shouldn’t that be the “news” we want to publicize?
Challenging Every Person to Take God More Seriously
Is devotion to God your primary passion? Our daily devotionals and Bible studies are designed to help you pursue this goal. More than mere fluff, our readings are “devotionals with a difference.” If you’re ready to reach toward spiritual growth, we’re here to support you.
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 413 — We must not only seek God, but we must seek Him diligently
When the lukewarm and lackadaisical go through the motions of “religion,” the result is an insult to God (Malachi 1:10,11). If we are to have fellowship with God, our relationship must be characterized by unselfishness, reverence, and diligence.
