Before God can work through us, He must work in us. Thats why we must keep on growing in our relationship with Him. And there is no better way to nurture that relationship than to spend time daily with Him, reading the Bible, reflecting on what it has to say for our life, and spending time in prayer. Our Daily Bread encourages this daily discipline with short devotional readings for each day of the year. Each devotional is based on a Scripture passage and developed around a relevant story or illustration that illuminates the truth of Gods Word.
