It's a cold January Sunday morning, and even though we can not meet together this Lord's Day, we can still learn from God's Word together today.
This year, we are concentrating on our Spiritual Disciplines - activities Christians are commanded to do in order to develop Godly attitudes. The foundation to our Spiritual Disciplines is daily Bible reading. We've been working hard to develop a daily reading habit by participating in the 5x5 Bible Reading Plan, but often it can seem like what we read disappears from our memory within minutes of closing the Bible.
This morning, we're going to look at Joshua 1:1-9 (I encourage you to open your Bible and follow along), and we're going to see not just that God enables you to be strong & courageous by reading His Words, but also learn some very practical steps we can follow to really dig deeper into the Bible and profit from what we read each day for years to come.
TIPS & TOOLS FOR DIGGING DEEPER:
