Bibleor Daily Devotions
You don’t need guilt, shame or criticism.
You need to be inspired, encouraged and loved!
It’s no secret that billions of people have been affected by the Bible.
Most have been changed for the better, but too many have been harmed! Not by the Bible itself, but by people sharing what they believe it says.
Unfortunately, sometimes people get it wrong, but even worse, sinister people often distort the Bible’s message to take advantage of others.
Here at Bibleor, we recognize the Bible has often been misunderstood and misused. Our aim is not to shove religion down anyone’s throat or beat you over the head with a message that doesn’t help you.
This is a new look at the daily devotional — providing timely, relevant and inspired content from a biblical perspective you can use and apply in ways that will actually improve your life. If reading and studying the Bible doesn’t result in some type of benefit, what’s the point?
After all, that’s the promise of the Bible, isn’t it — to make lives better?
That goal in mind, we’ll review three important points:
- What is a Bibleor daily devotion?
- What makes Bibleor daily devotionals different?
- How can Bibleor daily devotions help you?
Let’s dive in.
What is a Bibleor daily devotion?
First of all, what is a “Bibleor” anyway? What does that even mean?
Bibleor is pronounced, ‘bi-buhl-or.
Think of it like this: a contractor brings contracts to life, and an investigator performs investigations.
So Bibleor is just a term we created for someone who studies and brings to life the wisdom and teachings of the Bible.
Just like contractors train and practice to know the terms of their contracts and turn ideas into finished projects, investigators succeed through continuous study and consistently putting that knowledge to work. They aren’t born knowing the skills and techniques or come across it by accident, but they learn through persistent study and practice.
It’s the same with the Bible. Those who follow the Bible’s teachings also study the Bible to know what it says, and then work to put it into practice.
Living what the Bible teaches requires diligence, determination and dedication.
We can’t just read a few verses or listen to a sermon once a week and think we know all there is to know about it — no more than we could read a few equations from a quantum physics book and then believe we’re experts at it. It takes repetition, study and practice.
Bibleor daily devotions are brief articles and images designed to get you thinking along spiritual lines during your busy day.
They’re usually just a couple hundred words or less, and always based on Bible scripture. They only take a few minutes or even seconds to read but remind you to focus on the important things, like faith, hope and love.
These daily devotionals are meant to be quick to take in, easy to understand, but profound in their impact.
We live in a world constantly competing for our attention. Bibleor devotions aim to help you regain your center and retain spiritual balance.
It’s easy to get caught up in the noise of this worldly life, and Bibleor devotions are a great way to be reminded to take a few moments of mindful meditation on the eternal good.
Simple daily habits like this can have a dramatic positive effect on our lives.
What makes Bibleor daily devotionals different?
First and foremost, Bibleor daily devotions are not meant only for Christians. They are put together in such a way that everyone can see how biblical principles can and will apply to them and improve their lives and peace of mind.
Also, Bibleor does not cast judgment on anyone. The Bible teaches that every human being on the planet has messed up, made mistakes, and done things wrong. We are all human. The point is to change course and strive to do and be better.
Too often, people who claim to teach from the Bible come across as spiteful, condescending, arrogant and hateful, even if they have good intentions.
The irony is those attitudes are exactly the opposite of what the Bible teaches.
There’s an old saying that you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
A message of damnation and hell fire is the last thing anyone wants or needs, especially when the whole point of the Bible is to promote a way of living that embodies peace and love.
Bibleor devotions are created with this understanding and aim to be inviting and welcoming, not critical or judgmental. They are made to be a simple, accessible way to put the truth and wisdom of the Bible into action in our everyday lives.
The wisdom of the Bible and love of Christ are for everyone!
How can Bibleor daily devotions help you?
Maybe a better question is, how could they not help you?
When we wake in the morning, until our heads hit a pillow, we are bombarded with conflicting messages in every direction, from sin to salvation and everything between.
Being intentional about consistent study of scripture will result in a deeper understanding of God and your own spiritual nature, and how that fits into a world overflowing with shallow, self-centered materialism.
Just like steady drops of water can carve through rock, making a daily habit of even the smallest step toward spiritual knowledge will draw you closer and closer to the spiritual awakening the Bible promises.
Once you have that experience, your life will be transformed. You will look back on your former self with a sense of disbelief, and each day forward from there will be filled with a new sense of meaning and purpose. You will find a new peace, hope, gratitude and joy that defies understanding.
This is exactly what the Bible promises, but you have to seek it.
Just as the contractor or investigator doesn’t wake up one day an expert in their field, understanding the Bible takes persistent, consistent daily attention and study. Each small step forward will bring you closer to that level.
Bibleor daily devotionals are designed to help you achieve that. A few moments each day will bring about spiritual transformation in your life, if you genuinely and sincerely pursue it — guaranteed.
Where do we go from here?
Now you know what Bibleor daily devotions are, what makes them different, and how they will help you in your own life.
It’s been said that you are what you eat. Just like the health of our bodies depends on the nutrition we take in, our spiritual health and strength is just as dependent on the things we listen to, what we read, and the media we consume.
We can’t consume junk and expect to become healthy.
The Bible is very clear about this. When we give most of our attention to worldly things like money, power, control, status, and sex, we’re like a building without a foundation. When the proverbial winds blow or earth quakes, our lives come crashing down around us in ruin.
It’s not that material things are of themselves bad, but without first forming a solid foundation of internal peace and joy built on solid spiritual ground, our whole purpose and sense of fulfillment and happiness is entirely dependent on material things — and when they’re gone, so goes our happiness.
Bibleor daily devotions are like adding bricks and mortar to the foundation. Each new insight and reflection of truth reinforces the last, until one day we realize we are on solid, spiritual footing.
We hope you will accept these gifts offered freely to you. Bibleor isn’t a church trying to convert you to a religion. We don’t want to take anything from you at all. Instead, we want to give you something that will help you not only today but permanently and into eternity.
We hope you will join us on the path of seeking spiritual truth.
