After a break it is good to be back and (hopefully) encourage you through some helpful resources. I mentioned from the pulpit that I would offer some resources to encourage you devotional reading from the Word so that you might be transformed by it on a daily basis.
This next article is on how to make more time for reading. It is referring to reading in general, but if you are struggling to find time to study God’s Word trying applying some of these ideas to that area of your life as well!
Lastly, one thing I will do is read a devotional commentary on a book of the Bible that I am studying in my personal devotions (a devotional commentary is a non-technical explanation of the text that usually focuses on worship and personal growth). I have enjoyed reading R Kent Hughes’ commentaries from his Preach the Word series as I study through different passages (right now I am studying through 2 Corinthians and enjoying his study on it). Pastor Tim recently read Michael Card’s devotional commentary on Mark called “The Gospel of Passion.” If you are studying through a particular book, ask one of the pastors and they might be able to give you a recommendation.
I hope those help as you let God’s Word transform your life. I look forward to worshiping with you on Sunday.
