10 Most-Read Studies of 2017

10. Going Public: A 7-Day Devotional About Baptism and Why It Matters

When you decide to go public, saying Jesus is Lord, you start a whole new journey. It's not a journey about perfection or performance, but about listening to Jesus and doing what He says. And we're celebrating the step you took—being baptized—because you're only getting started.

9. Choosing Words Wisely: A 9-Day Devotional

Most of us only think about what we’re saying when we’re nervous or really regretting what just came out of our mouths. In the current age of social media, what would happen to our world if we would slow down, speak less, and listen more? Start this study to discover why what we say matters, and how we can use our words wisely.

8. 2 Corinthians: 21-Day Bible Study

Navigating travel plans, extending forgiveness, being "yoked together with unbelievers", practicing generosity, and facing opposition in the church, Paul's second letter to the Corinthian church is a faith-challenging read. This study is sure to stir your affections for the Lord and guide you to be more like Jesus in both words and actions.

7. 1 Corinthians: A 35-Day Devotional

What do we do when we have disagreements with other believers in the church?

The apostle Paul wrote a letter to the Corinthian church when they were struggling with these questions. The church was divided over issues about food, sex, relationships, how to worship, which leaders to listen to, and following Jesus while living in an ungodly culture.

6. Exodus: A 34-Day Devotional

Redemption was not an afterthought with God. It was His plan all along, and it’s something He’s still doing today. Israel’s rescue story is our story. The story of Exodus is repeated in every soul that seeks freedom from the things that trap us and cripple us — from the addiction, the insecurity, the hopelessness, the fear.

5. Colossians: A 28-Day Devotional

When we have a clear understanding of who Jesus is, it changes how we relate to Him and to everyone around us. Paul's letter, now known as the book of Colossians, provides practical instructions for Christians living in a culture that doesn’t acknowledge Jesus' authority.

Text READ MY BIBLE to 30303, and we'll send you a new devotional each morning.

4. Luke: A 24-Day Devotional

Luke is the gospel for the outcast, the person who thinks, Jesus couldn’t possibly have meant me. Reading Luke reminds us that Jesus didn't just come to save the Jews. He was the perfect Savior for us all.

3. 1 Samuel: A 6-Week Devotional

In any contest how you start matters. But even more important than how you start is how well you finish. A bad start can be overcome, but how we finish determines whether we talked a good game or actually lived up to what we said. Throughout this book, God is showing us that He is our everything. We can do and say all the right things, but what God really wants is our genuine love and devotion.

2. Genesis: A 7-Week Devotional

We all love a good origin story. It’s the reason we read celebrity biographies and line-up for the latest Star Wars prequel. In Genesis, we learn who God is and who we are in relationship to Him. And through Genesis, we see how we are part of a bigger story God has been writing since the beginning of time.

1. Proverbs: A 31-Day Devotional

In those times when we wish life came with a guidebook, Proverbs is the place to go. Proverbs is not a list of promises, but a list of timeless instructions from God. In each wise saying, we discover how to handle every situation.
