Student led Bible devotion

1.  Use the worksheet provided and write (hand written, no typing) devotion from proverbs or other verses if they work for your devo.  Devotion paper (see worksheet) must be turned in and also delivered orally to the class.  50% off devo grade if not recited to the class.  Deduction for weak or lazy presentation.  You might practice your presentation at home for effectiveness.

2.  What is a devotion?  Something from the Bible that you share with the rest of the class in an attempt to self-improve your Christian walk and share with others.

Find scriptures from Proverbs or other verses if they work for your devo and try to apply it to your life or someone's life.  Describe what the scriptures mean and give examples of the scriptures in every day life.

Write out the scriptures with an explanation.  If you make a reference to a scripture then note (write) chapter and verse only. But you can explain the verse in your paragraphs.  See below.

See Bible Devo Worksheet:

Mr. Cap's example of a Bible Devotion

Paragraph I   My Bible devotion today comes from Proverbs chapter 2:1-8. Now read the passage. Then say:  Solomon is starting out this Proverb by addressing his son.  But we can apply this to our lives.  Verses 1-4 are the ifs challenge.  Solomon says if we accept, store up, turn our ears, apply our heart, call out, cry aloud, look for , and search for wisdom then the blessings of verses 5-8 will come our way.

Paragraph II  Site some companion verses. Say: We can see others in the Bible who have sought wisdom. In Genesis 41: 39 Joseph cries out to God for wisdom.  In Exodus 4:12 Moses seeks wisdom on how to deal with the Pharaoh.  Psalm 23 compares God to a man who owns sheep.  The farmer looks after his sheep.  He provides their food and water.  He cares about them.  In the same way, God looks after us.  When we are in danger, God protects us.

Paragraph III Testimony Time: Give an example of how someone today (last 100 yrs), you or family member was wise, sought God and He answered, saw God bless them, was prosperous because searching for wisdom.   Say: Back when I was living in Omaha, I had just been saved for about a year, and I heard about this Bible school in Tulsa called Rhema Bible Training Center,  I always wanted to go and learn more about the Bible and ministry training.  But, I had a successful construction business, owned a house, lived in Omaha all my life, many friends,  I sought God for wisdom,  I prayed, told God I would if He said, Well, to make a long story short, He said go and I went.

Paragraph IV   Apply your devo to your classmates.  Say:  Well, I'm so glad that I obeyed God,  I would not change things if I had to do it over.  And the same can happen to you, if you will seek God, seek wisdom, seek an answer to the things going on in your lives, He will be there for you. He will answer you.  God will protect you, and shield you  in your time of trial.
