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.

"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path."

                              Psalm 119:105

In this time of a life-altering pandemic, anxiety, and distress, it's difficult to see anything good coming from it. But feeling a need to enrich my study of scripture, I planned a daily time, first thing in the morning, for just that. 

First, I gathered resources and set up a designated comfortable spot for my morning time with God. For me, the key was creating a new pattern. Then, I began in the New Testament, one chapter each day, using these resources:

  1. insights and comments relating God's word to everyday life written by a present-day Christian author, 
  2. next reading that chapter in my Bible 
  3. finally reading the Moody Bible Commentary verse-by-verse explanation of that chapter. 

This in-depth study of the Bible, one chapter at a time with verse-by-verse explanations has increased my understanding and given me a closer relationship with God. I look forward to this time devoted to my faith each morning. Born of the pandemic, something very positive has been added to my life.
