LifeMessage 365: A Daily Immersion in the Word
434 pages softcover, by John Juneman
There is no replacing some of the classic daily devotionals, such as My Utmost for His Highest or Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening. My own life has been deeply impacted by the deep and powerful truths contained in these works. LifeMessage 365 is a different kind of devotional. Its intent is to facilitate those who are seeking to know Jesus Christ through a daily immersion in God’s Word. To do this, we will walk day-by-day, for an entire year, in just three passages of scripture: John chapter 15, 1 Corinthians 10:1-13, and the letter to Philemon. Yes, you read that correctly! The purpose of this is to not only mine the truth of these passages, but to also offer an example of how a daily soaking in the Word might become a pattern for a lifetime of Bible study. A key to victory, whether in sports, raising children, or virtually any area in life, often lies in the daily practice of and attention to fundamentals: those seemingly simple matters that bear repeating and remembering often. As we plunge in these passages for weeks and months, some key fundamentals of relationship with Jesus Christ will be emphasized, repeated, and remembered day-by-day. This devotional might not be for everyone. But for anyone seeking to be immersed in the Word and desiring an extended “training camp” in walking daily with Jesus, I invite you to join me in allowing the message to become our life and our lives to become the message . . . 24/7 and 365.
