Jesus said:

Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.

John 15:4

Here is a way that you can remain connected to Jesus:

Pause – Spend a few moments in prayer, asking the Holy Spirit to guide and direct your reading of the Bible.

Scripture – Write out the verse or passage of Scripture that the Holy Spirit has shown you for that day. Here are the scriptures for each day this week:

Monday July 8 1 Samuel 28-29
Tuesday July 9 1 Samuel 30-31
Wednesday July 10 2 Samuel 1-2
Thursday July 11 2 Samuel 3-4
Friday July 12 2 Samuel 5-6
Saturday July 13 2 Samuel 7-8
Sunday July 14 2 Samuel 9-10

Observation – Write down any observations you make about the scripture. Try to explain the passage in your own words.

Application – Write down how this verse applies to your life. What is God calling you to do or to remember as a result? What is your next step and how can you be obedient?

Prayer – Write out a closing prayer. Use this final section to speak back to God about a request or a commitment.

Share – Look for opportunities throughout the day or week to share with others how God spoke to you through this passage.
