The Bible is not just an ancient history book. It contains the very words of God that we desperately need to hear today. It reveals God’s plan from the beginning of time to restore sinful humanity to Himself through the sinless life, substitutionary death, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. The Scriptures also bring us comfort and correction, “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12).
When I first surrendered my life to Jesus Christ, I began reading the Bible every day to learn more about this God who pursued me with His love when I was living in open rebellion to Him. I not only read the Bible, but I began to apply the Word to my life and was astonished over and over again, as I experienced transformation in so many areas of life. At one point, I shared with my Pastor that I felt like my DNA had changed.
I encourage you to participate in this 31-day devotional with a friend or prayer partner. Talk about the daily devotion and your answers to the questions at the end of each topic to receive even greater insight into what God is communicating to you that day. After you complete all 31 lessons, I challenge you to start over at the beginning and slowly repeat the lessons. This time feel free to take more than a day to meditate on each devotion as you interact with the Scriptures and with God through prayer.
Life transformation is possible for you!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17)
