Life Application Study Bible Devotional... a book review

Life Application Study Bible Devotional: Daily Wisdom from Jesus

For all of us who love the Life Application Study Bible, this devotional picks up where the Word ends.  Each of the 312 daily readings from the gospels - one for each weekday and one for the weekend - welcomes you into the life of Jesus.  "Each week focuses on a different event in His life - drawing out daily wisdom from his parables, teachings, conversations, miracles, and interactions with people." 

Each devotion helps you establish a time of reflection and meditation and challenges you to respond to God's Word through...
  • Reading the Word: the day's selection from the Gospels
  • Setting the Scene: a reflection on the passage with background information and other details explained.  The historical context is so important to understand Scripture.
  • Getting Personal: brief notes and questions to help you personalize the lessons of the daily Scripture reading.  This section helped me apply God's Word to my life and circumstances.
  • Talking to God: suggestions for shaping an extended time of conversation with God each day

I have enjoyed "walking" with Jesus and learning from his life.  This is a great companion devotional to the Life Application Study Bible.  For homeschoolers, this devotional works well as part of any Bible curriculum and a great way to start your day.

My rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars

I received this complimentary copy of the Life Application Study Bible Devotional: Daily Wisdom from the Life of Jesus from Tyndale Publishing for my review.
