Day by Day with God are Bible reading notes specifically written for women. All the contributors are women and write from a woman's perspective. The entries for each day contain a suggested Bible reading, with the key verse written out in full, a helpful comment that engages heart and mind and a short reflection or prayer. The regular team of contributors are all excellent writers. Whatever your current situation in life, you will be inspired and encouraged by these notes. Published every four months (in January, May and September) and edited by Catherine Butcher. The Editor writes What makes Christians stand out from the crowd? We certainly don't all look the same. We speak different languages. We worship in a huge variety of different ways. We often interpret scripture differently. But Jesus is the crucial common factor - and, because of Jesus, Christianity is different from every other religion. Jesus is the only human being who has died and come back to life, permanently. He has no death date and he promises his followers the same future, not as a reward for a good life but as a gift.
We start our year looking again at Jesus, the 'author and perfecter of our faith' (Hebrews 12:2, NIV). John the Baptist was among the first to recognise Jesus as Messiah, and Rosemary Green will be turning our focus to John later in January. As Rosemary says, John put Jesus centre-stage. Jesus went on to change the lives of an unruly mob of first-century followers. His life, death and resurrection take centre-stage in all of history, and our lives are transformed as we follow him and find identity, purpose and hope in him. This transformation is not a secret to keep to ourselves. He commissions us to follow him in making disciples, introducing others to this transformed life. This year, churches throughout the UK are working together to share the hope we have because of Jesus. Branded as HOPE 2014, it's a year when churches are working together in mission in villages, towns and cities. This mission is expressed in ways that are as diverse as the people involved - old and young, black and white, urban and rural, high church, low church and everything between. They are all followers of Jesus, seeking to put faith into practice both in action and in words.
As you start this year, join me in focusing afresh on Jesus and let his life bring meaning and purpose to your year as you put your trust in him.
