Why Daily Devotions

As a group of God’s people we are reading the Bible together, separately. By using the Life Journal reading schedule, we are on the same page – literally! When you read that day’s reading you can know that others in the Norkenzie family are reading the exact same thing! We may be miles apart, but we are having devotions together.

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 2 Timothy 3:16 - Risen Apparel www.shoprisen.com

Why A Reading Schedule?
Following a schedule is useful for sharing life. We are journeying through the Scriptures together! Beyond this, a reading schedule is important for systematically reading through the entire Bible. Without a schedule you will most likely gravitate to those passages in the Bible that you like the most, missing the richness of all of God’s Word. The reading schedule found in the Life Journal is the best one we’ve found! It is thoughtfully charted out, taking us through the Old Testament once and the New Testament twice each year.

As we read God’s Word, we begin to understand how God thinks about things. Daily reading God’s thoughts transforms our minds and the way we think. During our days when we encounter situations described in the Bible, we find ourselves thinking the way God thinks and responding the way He would have us!
