Nov. 14, 2006 – SPOKANE, WA – (November 15, 2006) – As Olive Tree Bible Software continues to expand its list of available Christian eBooks, one category of focus is daily devotionals. As many Christians have discovered, and are continuing to discover, spending a daily time in prayer and meditation on the Word of God is critical to one’s growth in the Christian walk. Daily devotionals are one helpful way to stir us up towards this purpose. Olive Tree Bible Software offers a variety of daily devotionals ranging from daily reading schedules to writings by classic authors such as Andrew Murray, John Calvin, and Amy Carmichael, to more contemporary sources including author Don Aycock and editor Diana Wallis, as well as several yearly Bibles and reading schedules.
One particular devotional in the classic vein is PILGRIM PORTIONS, selections from the writings, hymns, and letters of J.N. Darby, a minister in the 1800’s who, beginning in England, established many Brethren assemblies across the world and also wrote his own translation of the Bible.
The excerpts included in this devotional eBook address one topic for each week of the year, all focusing on one thing — Christ, in as many aspects as are suited to the needs of souls. These nuggets are a mine of wealth, and there are deep riches available to those who are willing to dig and obtain them. Topics include Sin, the Word of God, Trials, Looking unto Jesus, the Presence of God, Service, the All-sufficiency of Christ, Our needs and His fullness, Praise, Our hope, and many others.
Excerpt (from Looking to Jesus): “…It is well to be done with ourselves and to be taken up with Jesus. We are entitled to forget ourselves, we are entitled to forget our sins, we are entitled to forget all but Jesus … Looking to God one is above all the heaving and breakers, and walking on a rough sea is the same as walking on a smooth sea…”
PILGRIM PORTIONS is one of the many devotionals, Bibles, and other Bible study resources available from Olive Tree Bible Software for your Palm, Pocket PC, or Symbian UIQ device.
