Winter 2018–19 Themes
Our Love for God
This winter, Daily Bible Study presents a series of readings following the theme, “Our Love for God.” Readings come from Old and New Testament texts. These daily readings, which prepare us for the 13 lessons in Adult Bible Studies, are written by Clara Welch, Randy Cross, and Martha Myre.
God Commands Our Love, Respect, and Obedience
Daily readings in this five-week unit focus on love and devotion, choosing to love and serve God, what it means to love and worship God, Jesus as God’s loving promise, and how we can model God’s love.
Loving God by Trusting Christ
This five-week unit features readings that encourage holding fast to God’s love, submitting to God in love, submitting to God in Christ, devoting all to Christ, and renouncing everything for Christ.
Love Songs That Glorify God
The daily readings in this three-week unit lead us to ponder God’s steadfast love, praise God’s mighty works, and live with God’s loving assurance.

We make room for Jesus when we make room for all who need the gifts and love we can offer. When that way of acting becomes woven into our thinking and every response, then we will welcome Christ with joy each day as we care for others. --Randy Cross, Daily Bible Study
