~ Daily Bread is the Bible reading guide that aims to help you hear from God as you read the Bible.
If you've ever asked the question, 'What possible relevance can this verse have for me today?' or 'What difference does this passage make to my life?' then read on...
Reading the Bible is about developing a relationship with God, through dependence on the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helps us to engage with the Bible and to face God's challenge in the here and now. He will always point us to Jesus Christ, the heart of God's Word to us, the one who shows us who God is. Everyone needs a little help when reading the Bible. Sometimes the poetry and prose, history and revelation, or parables and proverbs need some explanation. Daily Bread provides real inspiration each time you read it. Our writers are from all kinds of backgrounds with all kinds of perspectives. We're sure you'll be challenged, encouraged, surprised and inspired as God uses the notes to speak into your life.
