Revamp and Relaunch

January 4, 2012 by Paul Chappell

One of my greatest passions as a pastor is to see people become firmly rooted in a personal walk with God through consistently spending time with Him. For the past several years, I have written daily devotions, available through email and web, to encourage growing Christians in their walk with the Lord.

I’m excited to announce that we have just completed a revamping of this resource to make it even more useable and helpful! Our theme for Lancaster Baptist Church this year is “Rooted in Christ,” and I’m praying that this tool will help many draw nourishment from the Lord through this coming year.

Each Daily in the Word devotion now includes four helpful resources:

  • A devotional truth—Each devotion is written to encourage you to seek the Lord and to personally and practically apply His truth to your daily living.
  • A daily rooted principle—This principle provides a solid “takeaway” from the devotion to help you more deeply root yourself in God’s truth.
  • An Old and New Testament passage—These Scriptures, included just below the devotional thought, will guide you through reading the entire Bible in one year. This means that by simply using this resource every day, you can complete a read-through of the entire Bible by December 31.
  • Share buttons—These buttons make it easy for you to email, tweet, or share on Facebook helpful truths from this resource.

In addition to revamping the devotions, we have re-launched this site to make it simple and streamlined for you. There are three ways you can receive these devotions and Scripture texts:

Nothing in a Christian’s life can replace daily spending time in God’s Word, practically applying God’s truth, and then sharing personal growth with others. I pray that this resource is a help in all three areas.

  2. Looking forward to the new format. Especially with the new link to share the devotions. I truly appreciated Sunday evening’s message. It was an encouragement to me!
    Thanks for everything you and Mrs. Chappell do for us all. ~ Praying for a wonderful year in 2012!

  3. Hello Pastor Chappell,
    My name is Juli and I attend Lighthouse Baptist Church in Moreno Valley where I am blessed to be led by Pastor Preston and Pastor Wilson. During our service on New Year’s Day, Pastor Preston spoke quite a bit about our need to spend time in God’s word every day. He recommended several different ways that we can do this. One of his suggestions was to sign ourselves up to an online daily devotional such as Our Daily Bread or yours. I have only been attending Lighthouse Baptist for about 3 months and, although I have heard Pastor Preston, Pastor Wilson and, even Conner,our musical director, speak of your church, I had never heard your name before. But, after Pastor Preston told us about your daily devotional, I wrote your name and the title of your devotions, Daily in the Word, down among all the other notes I was rapidly scribbling down to remind me to look up your devotionals when I got up the next morning. I have to say, I was immediately pleased by what I saw so I proceeded to subscribe. Since I have begun receiving your daily devotions in my inbox, I have heard God speak to me through each and every one of them. Thank you so very much for this labor of love that you do to benefit so many of us.
    God Bless You, Pastor Chappell
