Why another devotional? Daily Treasures is a new classic Bible-based devotional written for the twenty-first century. The reading calendar and devotionals lead the reader sequentially through each book of the Bible. By investing twenty minutes a day for a year, the reader will read the Old Testament once, and both the New Testament and Psalms twice! This approach stresses continuity, giving the reader familiarity with the content of the Word of God.
The devotionals, drawn from the daily Bible portions, provide faith-strengthening encouragement. They are also practical outlines that can be used in Bible studies and sermons. Daily Treasures from the Word of God is a tool that will profoundly challenge the reader to growth in maturity in Jesus Christ. Although perfect for daily Bible study, this volume is also a fantastic tool for sermon illustrations and can be used to facilitate small group discussions.
“Obedience and submission to God brings about great triumphs and rewards.” (source)
“If you are not sure that you are justified, ask the Lord for forgiveness. Believe exclusively in Jesus Christ and His redemptive work. This is the assurance of believers.” (source)
“Rest in the biblical sense does not mean ‘to do nothing.’ The concept is one of trust in God and knowing that He is faithful to accomplish what He has promised. It is an exercise of faith and obedience which gives one a sense of God’s active involvement in our lives and ministries.” (source)
“Let’s learn the importance of faithful service to the Lord over desiring popularity and acceptance before people. Pleasing our Lord is more important than receiving the applause of the crowd. May we be God-pleasers!” (source)
“Sin brings shame and separation from God. No one can have the same intimate relationship with God that we see in Genesis before the fall. God sent His Son to bridge the gap through His sinless perfect sacrifice.” (source)
