Meditations for Daily Growth

Obeying the Gospel

A Ransomed People (October 5)

A Ransomed People (October 5)

The Heart Can Help (October 5)

The Heart Can Help (October 5)

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).
