Verse of The Week

Please Note: We are taking a break from the weekly devotionals. However, there are enough VOWs on this list to accommodate your weekly devotional fix for a full year.

The Verse of the Week (VOW) is a short devotional for you to meditate on all week. This way you can do additional study on the topic and incorporate your learnings into your daily walk.

Rather than drinking from a firehose, we want you to enjoy the Water as from a glass at a slower pace so you can actually take it in and be quenched.

Each VOW presents a verse, some thoughts or commentary, a challenge, and a prayer. Spend a little time with one verse each week and…
