Knowing God: Week 3 - Devotion 1

In this week’s time of Bible study, you learned that our knowledge of God is vital to our spiritual transformation. As we get to know Jesus through our relationship with Him, we become more and more like Him. Compare our relationship with Jesus with our relationship with others. Some people are guilty of spending more thought on our earthly relationships than with our relationship with God. 

For example, a guy wouldn't ask a girl on a date if he didn't have a plan about what they would do and where they would go. Yet we so often sit down to spend time with Jesus, and we have no real plan. We often get nothing out of our time with Jesus because we planned not to get anything out of it.

Today, I want you to write down a plan of how you want to spend your time with Jesus today.

  • What do you want to do? You could pray, read the Word, memorize scripture, sing a worship song, etc.  

  • When are you going to do it?  

  • How long will your time together last?  

  • What is the goal of your time together?


Having a plan is a great way to minimize distractions. It shows you’re serious about knowing God more.
