James I. Packer says of the devotional life:
"To rush to God randomly babbling about what is on our mind at the moment, with no pause to realize his greatness and grace and our own sinfulness and smallness, is at once to dishonor him and to make shallow our own fellowship with him."
Dr. Packer has taught generations of Christians how to know God better. Now he helps us draw closer to God each day with insightful readings. Focusing on what it means to be a part of the family of God, these meditations will lead you into the Father's presence trough Scripture, prayer, and practical wisdom.
