Maintaining Christian faith is a daily exercise of spiritual discipline. In this first of four volumes, Reverend James Craig Noggle shares 100 easy-to-use entries to help devoted Christians develop their own daily discipline of fellowship with God through scripture, meditation, and prayer.
John Wesley, founder of the Methodist movement, developed a list of practices, widely known as Wesley's Means of Grace, as a guide for an effective, growing, Christian life. The list includes the public worship of God, the ministry of the Word, and both family and private prayer, among other principles. Reverend Noggle combines these disciplines with heartfelt stories and illustrations collected over his twenty-five-year ministry to provide a daily, thirty-minutes-or-less, guided lesson in entering God's presence and knowing him better.
Reverend Noggle's prayer is that this devotional will provide encouragement and inspiration for readers to go deeper into scripture, deeper into the stories of their lives, and deeper into prayer for their friends, family, and themselves. This volume, and the three following, will assist you in moving closer to the arms of God and experiencing a more intimate relationship with him.
