Proverbs 31:3

Time for a New Devotional

I have been posting a daily Proverbs devotional for three years now, with the intent of turning it into a desk flip calendar.  That calendar is ready to produce this year, so I am moving away from sending you a daily Proverb and will transition to a daily devotional I am calling, "What Would Jesus Ask?"  There was a movement years ago that asked, "What Would Jesus Do?" and a nutritionist has a series, "What Would Jesus Eat?" My series will be similar in title but will focus on important questions for you to consider.

I noticed years ago that Jesus asked a lot of questions when he taught the crowds and His disciples.  I want to isolate those questions and send them to you with some devotional thoughts that will help you seek the Lord for answers.  Someone once said, "Quality questions lead to quality answers and a quality life."  I believe that is why Jesus asked so many questions, so you can seek Him for quality answers that will in turn give you abundant life in Him.

I have posted a complete collection of daily Proverbs devotionals from the last year as month-by-month documents on my website, which you can access at any time.  Or you can go online to my blog, click on Categories in the right hand column, and access every Proverbs post I have made for the last three years.  Either way, if you want the Proverbs devotional, you can find it in two different formats. If you can't do either of those, write me as a last resort and I will email you the monthly list.

There are more than 150 questions in the gospels alone, but we will not be limited to those questions.  I will choose questions from Psalms, Proverbs, the epistles and other parts of the Bible. Even though Jesus did not directly ask all those questions, He can pose and perhaps is posing them to you today because they are part of the inspired word of God. I believe we will find 366 questions that will help shape and guide your spiritual journey this year and for years to come. I will also include a link to the passage in which the question is found, so you can read the entire context to better understand and answer the question.

I am excited about this new venture, which will allow me to expand my devotional repertoire, which includes a verse-by-verse study of the entire New Testament (found here), The Revelation Project, A Daily Dose of Proverbs, and Faith Files, Volumes One and Two (they are all available through Amazon in Kindle format). I am doing all I can to help you engage and apply the word of God on a daily or regular basis.

Thank you for your support and feedback that let me know the Daily Dose was helpful.  Now it's time to move on.  If you want to unsubscribe, you can do so when you receive any of your daily email updates from me.  If you want to subscribe a friend or yourself to receive this new devotional, you can do so by going to the site where it will be posted. Feel free to add your insights and answers to the questions so that we can build an interactive devotional that includes more than just my insights.



Count me in Doc! I am excited and expectant!
A happy and prosperous 2012 to you and yours Doc.

I have really benefitted from your Daily Proverbs, Pastor John, so I look forward to this new venture. Questions are always a good place to start! Thanks so much for your dedication in helping us all grow together as the body of Christ!

I am excited about your new devotional, and have been blessed by the daily devotions based on Proverbs. God has used more than one to redirect my path and to raise new questions. Thank you for your commitment ( ours and yours) to growing in Christ.
