Abide through a Daily Time with God
Abiding is about worship, offering ourselves back to God through Jesus. We do that when we gather together each week but also when we take time each day to give God our undivided attention through prayer, Bible reading, and meditation.
If you are not currently reading the Bible, here are some suggestions to help you get started:
- Determine a place and time where you can meet alone with God. Set aside 10 to 30 minutes when you are at your best and make your time with God a priority.
- Choose a Bible in a translation that you can understand. Also, keep a pen and a journal, notebook, or paper handy to record what you are hearing from God.
- Read the Bible for transformation rather than information. Our goal is to listen for God’s personal word to us, reading not to master the text but be mastered by it.
