This has been the answer to my prayer over the years for a relevant devotional book for young people.
As a teacher of the young adult class of our Sunday School for many years, it was a regular practice to instill in the young people the importance of the habit of a daily time with the Lord and His Word. And when they left, I always longed to have a relevant devotional book to hand to these young people. Such a book was hard to find.
Through my interaction with young people over the years, I have come across two responses to the Bible that caused concern. One, that the Bible is an ancient book written centuries ago for a people who lived ages ago. Hence, the Bible is not relevant to us today in our fast and current world. The other, that the Bible is too difficult to understand or be applied. At the Potter’s Wheel, Day by Day, is a humble attempt to address these two concerns.
The reading plan for this book takes you through the Bible in a year, but with a twist. The readings are found in chronological order, which means that the readings are in the order that the events of the Bible took place.
The devotions are based on key verses taken from every book of the Bible. The two sets of reading portions enable you to choose either to read a small portion of Scripture, found at the top of the page each day, giving the context for the devotion. Additionally, you could challenge yourself to read through the Bible in a year, using the ‘Extended Readings’ found at the end of each devotion.
It is my prayer that, as your journey through the Bible this year, you would find that all Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, thoroughly equipping you for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
