Why Should I Follow Jesus? |

Help with a daily devotional time

Why this is so important:

For all Christians, it’s important to maintain closeness to God. One good way is to plan into each day an appointment with him. This discipline should allow you time to reflect on God and on the day’s tasks. You are stopping to acknowledge

his lordship

your need of him

and your love for him.  

If we are always giving out and not receiving, we can become worn out and feel spiritually bankrupt. The Bible is the best source to hear from God and this, if reflected on and meditated on, will impact your life and lead to prayer for yourself and others, as well as to praise and thanksgiving. 


a Bible

a notebook

a pen

(and perhaps also a hymn book, a devotional book or booklets, a book of prayers, Common Worship (or Book of Common Prayer), a journal).
