Family Discipleship | Sample Devotional

The following session is a sample session from our assigned devotionals for family discipleship. We want our family units to be in pursuit of Christ together. For more information or to get an updated Family Discipleship booklet, go here to let a staff member know. 

  • Session 7: Living Out God’s Word is THE KEY to Discipleship (2 Tim 3:16-17)


The Bible exists in two places within most homes… either on a shelf collecting dust or within the hearts of those living in the home. It’s safe to say God would prefer His word to be in your heart rather than on a shelf.  Why?


2 Timothy 3:16-17 explains it this way… 16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, 17 so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.


You see, the Bible has application in EVERY aspect of our lives. It is “profitable”. Simply put, it benefits you. It is God’s word, His instruction, His love letters, to His children.


In order for us to teach others the ways of God’s word, we must first lean on His

words with unwavering faith as we walk through life.


Questions & Applications


  • When was the last time you read your Bible?  

-Consider making a schedule for reading your Bible daily

-Discuss your plan with someone (this will help keep you accountable to your plan)


            Is there a particular scripture that helps you through your day?  

-If your answer is “yes”, share that scripture with someone

-If your answer is “no”, ask someone if they have a scripture that helps them through their day


  Take some time to pick and read (at random) 2 or 3 chapters of the Book of Psalms. This will probably only take 5 to 10 minutes total. Discuss how God may be speaking to you after you read each Psalm.
