Four months' worth of inspirational and informative daily Bible notes for prayer and reflection
This edition of WORDS OF LIFE starts with young King Solomon's singular initial task of fulfilling his father's vision by building the splendid Temple in Jerusalem. From a king using costly materials we turn to lessons from commonplace objects of pottery. Then guest writer Major Anita Caldwell challenges us to pursue the splendour of everyday holiness before the apostle John's writings aid our thinking as we move towards the Easter victory of our radiant Risen Lord. On Sundays we discover more nuggets in the psalms. 'The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God's glory.' (Colossians 1:27, The Message).
