All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Thank God for the truth of His Word (the Bible) and pray for power and discipline to ingest God’s Word on a daily basis in a way that connects for you. Ask the Holy Spirit to bring the Bible alive in your heart and mind every time you read it.
Seven Days In a Row…with Consistency Pick a time when your mind is sharp and you are not likely to face distractions for fifteen minutes. Make time to bring biblical truth into your heart and mind in a way that really connects you to God and His truth. Use the list given in Sunday’s sermon.
