Our new 30-day devotional helps students spend time with Jesus and abide in him. Each day walks through a 4-step process: Refocus, Read, Reflect & Respond.
Note: This is a high-quality devotional book (physical product) for the students in your ministry. We recommend getting one for each student.
Pairs well with Abide, our new 4-week teaching series helping students remain focused on Jesus & stay aware of His presence in their lives.
Looking for a student devotional for Advent or the Christmas season? Abide devos are a great option!
Refocus: Life is busy . . . and distracting . . . and stressful. Most of us could use some help slowing down our brains and clearing our heads enough to hear God’s voice. Each day of this devotional, we’ll begin with a short, centering prayer to help us focus our attention on the remarkable reality that God wants to spend time with us.
Read: We believe God is present when we read the Bible, and one of the main ways God’s people have abided in Him throughout history is read- ing and meditating on His Word. Each day, we’ll share a short Bible passage for you to read in a variety of ways.
Reflect: When the biblical writers encouraged us to meditate on God’s Word, they were encouraging us to think deeply—or reflect—on the biblical texts. Each day, we’ll throw out some questions
to ponder as we consider 1) what God is revealing about Himself and His ways, and 2) how it applies to our lives.
Respond: In James 1, we’re encouraged to not only hear the word, but also to do what it says. Each day, we’ll offer a few thoughts on ways you can respond to whatever amazing thing God just said to you.
FROM THE HEART
We've been creating resources for youth groups around the world for many years, and we're so excited to now offer our very first printed devotional. In our experience, many students struggle with carving out the time to spend time in God's word every day. Our prayer is that this resource helps students to slow down and connect with their creator, even if just for a few minutes.
