People often say that while they have a desire to draw closer to God through reading the Bible, they don’t! In fact, many would rather attend a service at “Bedside Baptist” to show their good deed or belief in God. For those who do, they typically approach it with apprehension or reluctance because they do not understand the Bible. Whether it is the parables of Jesus, the various versions of the Bible, or the archaic language (which seems to have been written for an earlier period in time), all of these reasons have, unfortunately, extinguished people’s desire to read God’s written word.
For these reasons (and many more), devotional commentaries have proven to be beneficial in assisting both new and seasoned Christians with studying the Bible. These interpretive pieces are written by gifted communicators who have received revelation from the Holy Spirit. As such, they are able to communicate God’s Word with depth and clarity, while also contextualizing the text. As a disclaimer, it’s important to note that commentaries (whether devotional, expositional, exegetical or homiletical) are not written as a replacement to the Bible, and should never be viewed as such; but as an aid to the reader to gain a deeper understanding of God’s written word.
In this modern-day devotional commentary, the author aims to provide insight into God’s written word and inspire readers to grow in their love for Christ. Each piece provides the reader with an in-depth understanding of the Scriptures and how to apply them in their personal lives when suffering in the areas of health, wealth and family. Each piece will assist the reader on how to seek God when faith seems to be diminished, when they’re in a backslidden state, have fallen into unbelief, and/or when they’re required to lay something or someone down on the altar of sacrifice in order to gain THAT which is far better.
