I love a good devotional. Some of my favorites are those that keep you closely tied to the actual stories of Jesus. In the same way I loved the devotional “A Year with God” devotional, I’ve found the same inspiration in the devotional “A Year with Jesus.” Again in this wonderful devotion you find the power of the actual words Jesus spoke…like they are recorded in the Bible…as the main focus of this great devotional. “A Year With Jesus” is a great combination of Biblical text, reflections and insights into that text that leads me into a wonderfully rounded morning.
Here are my favorite parts… The Biblical text is actually written at the top of each page. So you don’t need to have a separate Bible to look up the verses…let’s just say it like it is…when I’m in a hurry that’s the part that gets left behind. Love the way it’s dated “Day 7” instead of January 7. That means I can pick up the study at any point in the year and not feel guilty about skipping 4 months of content to get to the right day. Or in more likelihood I can miss a day or two and not feel guilty about being behind! Just pick it up where you left off. Another great selling point is that it’s broken up into topics…that way if I’m wanting to read a devotion about Love…I can flip to that section and find something that will fill me up for the day. That’s a handy tool that many devotionals leave lacking. What can I say…I liked it. I’ll still keep my others on my desk, but definitely I’ll add this one to the stack!
