God's Word: Week 1 - Devotion 1

Let’s get it out of the way right now, shall we? Let’s cut right to the chase on the front end of this thing. 

When you hear the words “Bible study” or “Quiet time” what thoughts come to mind? How would you describe your reaction? Seriously. Don’t just pass this by. Take a moment and look at the choices below. When you think of spending time reading your Bible, what response best applies to how you feel?

  • get pretty pumped about it. 

  • It’s OK, I guess.

  • No reaction really at all. Kind of like . . . blah.

  • I’m pretty turned off. Overwhelmed. Bored. I just don’t get it.

So, here’s the deal: Starting out here is not a bad place, no matter what your response was. The important thing is that you actually think about your attitude toward the Bible, and that you consider doing something about it. 


Think about this:

Do this over the next few days. (For real.) Ask God to work on you and your attitude toward knowing the Bible better. Ask Him to awaken a desire in you to actually WANT to meet Him in the pages of the Bible. And ask with the expectancy that He will do it.
