Daily Devotions
 

Welcome to Good Shepherd’s Daily Devotions Page!

In the church year the season of Epiphany falls between the seasons of Christmas and Lent.  It is a time when we focus on how God’s hope is revealed in Jesus.  In this season we read the stories of the Baptism and Transfiguration of Jesus and the calling of the Disciples.  Each story reveals a bit about who Jesus is, and what his life means for us and our call to be disciples.

Our Devotions for the season of Epiphany have been written by members of the Good Shepherd staff.  May they enlighten and inspire you and light your path to a deeper walk with God.

Faith5: Read

Keeping with our journey through the Faith5, we are going to talk a bit about the importance of scriptures. When utilizing the Faith5, after SHARING with someone your highs and lows, you are invited to READ some scriptures together.

This almost always concerns folks because they don’t know where to start! There is SO much Bible! So, for this exercise, I would challenge you to utilize ANY and all tools at your disposal. Do you have a favorite verse? Don’t know where it is in the bible? GOOGLE it! You can also read the reading from worship! Or you can Google “Daily Bible Verse.”  

After sharing highs and lows, the scriptures can often take on a particularly profound significance. We might see connections between the story in scriptures and your own experiences of highs and lows throughout your day. It’s good to be rooted in scriptures. Whenever something happens in my day that sparks up memories of Bible passages or Bible stories, it feels like I am experiencing a sort of echo. Like the things that unfolded thousands of years ago are still reverberating throughout history. 

Deuteronomy 6
4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.[a] 5 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. 6 These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. 7 Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. 8 Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. 9 Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

So, today, you are invited to SHARE and READ.     Video
