These daily online studies are adapted from our Quiet Time Bible Guide. The studies go through the Old and New Testaments in just over two years. The approach taken by our quiet time Bible studies does not include answers. The goal of the study is to help you dig into Scripture for yourself. You can go deeper using a commentary, Bible background guide or Bible handbook.
For more context before you begin studying, read this introduction to the book of Psalms.
Judy had a portable phone beside her. Her son's wife was expecting, and Judy was about to become a grandmother for the first time. During the entire Bible study, Judy contributed to our discussion. However, if that phone had rung with news of her daughter-in-law's labor, Judy would have been out of there in a minute. Just as Judy was prepared to receive a call and ready to respond when it came, so we should be waiting on the Lord.
Jesus calls his disciples to deny themselves, take up their cross and follow him. Commit yourself, body and soul, to him. As reservations or objections rise to the surface, ask Jesus to take them from you.
Pray for your loved ones that don't yet have a relationship with Jesus Christ. Ask the Spirit to give them hungry hearts for his love.
