Over the last months, we’ve posted dozens of different devotionals from around the web; hopefully you’ve found them inspiring and maybe even bookmarked a few for your daily reading.
But today, we thought it would be useful to back up and ask a more basic question about Christian devotional practice: Is devotional time important for Christians?
Most Christians would probably answer an instinctive “yes” to that question; but exactly why is it important to spend time in personal devotions? DiscipleshipTools.org has put together an excellent series of short essays that explain the basics of Christian devotions. It begins with a look at how to do devotions and goes on to explain why devotions are important and what spiritual benefits result from doing devotions.
If you’ve never tried “doing devotions,” or if you’ve drifted out of the habit of spending time in prayer and reflection each day, take a look at these articles. And if you’ve got any tips or suggestions for making the most out of your devotional time, share them in the comments below!
