Every Day with Jesus
Daily Devotions for January 20-26, 2014
Quotes from Christians past, week 3
In the final week of this series, read these short, concise quotes from Christians who have gone before us. Stop. Consider. Embrace the biblical truth behind each quote. Talk to your Lord about it in prayer.

Monday, Jan 20
God’s mercy is so great that you may sooner drain the sea of its water, or deprive the sun of its light, or make space too narrow, than diminish the great mercy of God.  – Charles Spurgeon
My God, when I stop to consider the mercy You flood into my life through Jesus Christ, I realize that Your grace for me dwarfs the universe itself. Thank You, Lord. Thank You. Amen.

Tuesday, Jan 21
Why should we live halfway up the hill and swathed in the mists, when we might have an unclouded sky and a radiant sun over our heads if we would climb higher and walk in the light of His face?" - Alexander Maclaren
Lord, only the light of Your Word will dissolve the dark fog of this sinful world. Draw me to Your Voice. Move me to devour Your Scripture. Shine on my face. Lift me to Yourself. Amen.

Wednesday, Jan 22
Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith. - Henry Ward Beecher
Holy Spirit, You know the anxiety that often vexes me. By Your Gospel give me peace of mind and heart. Empower me to grab each new day by the handle of faith. Amen.

Thursday, Jan 23
To gather with God's people in united adoration of the Father is as necessary to the Christian life as prayer – Martin Luther
Heavenly Father, at those times when I feel tempted to withdraw from my fellow Christians, remind me that I need them, and they need me. Amen.

Friday, Jan 24
When we were children we were grateful to those who filled our stockings at Christmas time. Why are we not grateful to God for filling our stockings with legs? - GK Chesterton
Thank You, Lord God, for my legs, my hands, my stomach, my lungs, my heart. And thank You for redeeming my body and soul by the blood of Your Son. In a troubled world, my life is sweet, because my life belongs to You. Amen.

Saturday, Jan 25
Do not touch Christianity unless you are willing to seek the kingdom of God first. I promise you a miserable existence if you seek it second. – Henry Drummond
Lord God, I confess to You the many times I have put the distractions of life ahead of You. I acknowledge I have often tasted emptiness and misery as a result. I bend my knees in repentance. Wash me in Jesus’ blood. Bring me back to You. Amen.

Sunday, Jan 26
Before me, even as behind, God is, and all is well. - John Whittier
Dear Savior, remind me that all is well. All is well not because everything in my life is perfect and pain-free, but because You are here. You are behind me. You are before me. You surround me. What matters is You, Lord. What matters is You. Amen.

2 Year Reading Plan for the Bible (NIV)

Please join us in our goal to read the entire Bible over a 2 year span of time.

2 Year Reading Plan of the Bible (NIV 1984)

The Today's Light Bible helps individuals and groups read and study the entire NIV Bible in just two years, breaking the readings down into manageable daily portions that can be completed in just 15 minutes or less. Brief devotions based on the text help readers understand and apply that day's Scripture selection to their lives.
