Moody Publishing recently sent me Daily Readings from the Life of Christ by John MacArthur. I have several of these types of books lying around the house in various places and to be honest, most sit and pick up dust. However, I have been reading in this one every day since it has arrived and I think it will be one that I won't let slide!
As the title suggests, this book focuses on the life of Christ and each day centers around a verse or two that He spoke. John MacArthur adds a few paragraphs of commentary and then leaves me with a few questions that I find myself mulling on for some time. This book makes a great stop for the busy mama that might only have a few minutes during the day, but wants to clear her head of the buzz of household noise and sit with Jesus for a moment. Each day takes me, literally 5-7 minutes to read, and while I don't want this to become a substitute for my morning time with the Lord, this has been a respite for me as I sit down for a break during the girls' rest time. A gentle reminder during my day that my goal is to ultimately be like Jesus.
Moody generously (and unexpectedly) sent me an extra copy of this wonderful devotional and I will pick a random commenter to receive the copy! Leave comment on this post if you are interested, and I'll close comments next Saturday, October 3, and draw a winner. Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you, or I will pick another winner.
