In the Formula of Concord, we confess:
We should ask that through the [Holy] Spirit and His grace, by means of the daily exercise of reading and doing God’s Word, He would preserve in us faith and His heavenly gifts, strengthen us from day to day, and keep us to the end. For unless God Himself be our schoolmaster, we can study and learn nothing that is acceptable to Him and salutary to ourselves and others.
Especially now as our public assembling together is greatly curtailed for a time, it may be good to consider more opportunities to hear, read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest God’s Word on a day to day basis. You may consider starting or bolstering your daily individual/family devotions. Below are many different options that you might find helpful. Don’t feel as though you need to do them all or many of them. There are many options of varying amounts of time and mediums (email/booklets/podcasts). You may try some out for a time and settle on something else later.
