"God's Work, Our Hands As We Keep Christ First"



For many Christians, reading a daily devotional is a very important part of their faith walk. Devotions are scripture-based write-ups of varying lengths, which could be true experiences, aimed at encouraging the reader to live a life dedicated to God.


There are many reasons why a Christian should use a daily devotional. These include:


(a) Encouragement – we all go through different situations and circumstances and at such times reading a devotional can help our perspective on these situations. Christian devotions can speak to your situation, encourage you, and help you to grow in faith.
(b) Prompting us to study the Word of God – daily devotions should be Word-centered. Reading a devotional will prompt you to read more of the Word of God.
(c) Helping to increase your faith – the Word of God says "faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God." As you read the daily devotions and meditate on the examples and experiences that are cited,your faith is stirred up.
(d) Telling us of other peoples experiences - Gives us the opportunity to know and learn from the experiences of others.
It is our hope that the devotions below will be helpful to you in your journey with God.
