Life Along the Way

What would it have looked like and felt like to walk daily with Jesus during His time on earth, sharing in what He experienced and taught? And how does His life have significance for our own lives today? We can answer these questions by following in His footsteps-each step of the way.

Experiencing the Significance of the Journey

In any journey, the destination is important, but just as significant is the life we experience as we travel that path. Jesus’ journey was similar. Who He traveled with, where He went, and what He experienced along the way were all important to Him. He’s still on His journey, and He has invited you to join Him on it.

The Life Along the Way devotional series takes you through the life of Jesus by way of all four Gospels and the first chapter of Acts. In four 90-day devotionals, you can travel with Jesus for a full year if you wish—from His birth, to His ministry and miracles, to His relationships with the people around Him, to His death, resurrection, and ascension. The four devotionals in the journey can be read either sequentially or in any order.

These devotionals are designed so that each day:

  • Scripture will be life-transforming
  • “Life Lessons from Jesus” will be dynamic and relevant
  • Questions will be reflective and self-exploring, leading to spiritual growth
  • Prayer will be authentic and relational
  • You will learn to love Jesus and love like Jesus.
