Greetings Today in the Word readers! I have the privilege and honor of serving as executive editor of Today in the Word, and my staff and I are overjoyed that it is 2013. The reason for our joy is the 25th anniversary of Today in the Word!
We are thrilled to celebrate this great milestone and the many devotions that have been written and produced. But most importantly, we are thrilled to celebrate how God has used this publication to encourage hundreds of thousands of readers in their study of His Word. Just think of the many people who have deepened their relationship with Jesus by reading Today in the Word over the years.
Since the launch of Today in the Word 25 years ago, this publication has had many different “looks,” and we have added to its media platforms with audio, e-mail, and a website. But one thing hasn’t changed: our commitment to helping people study and apply God’s Word.
For 25 years, Today in the Word has offered readers of all ages rich content, equipping them with the truth of God’s Word. We want to be a cheerleader and coach to encourage you to consistently read, study, and apply Scripture to your life.
To celebrate our 25th anniversary, we have produced the Today in the Word Notebook. Because you are a part of the Today in the Word family, we would like to offer you this gift as our thanks for your prayer and financial support. Please celebrate with us by requesting your Today in the Word Notebook today on the enclosed reply card.
Thank you for your faithful partnership that is equipping people around the world with the truth of God’s Word. As we look to the future, let us continue to study God’s Word, so that we may hear what He has to say to us today, in the Word.
FROM OUR READERS
“Every issue has been strengthening my faith each day, bringing me peace and calm in a world we live in, with confusion and terror constantly in the news. Our Christian values and Constitution (Bill of Rights) are under attack. Through my love of country and our people, my ‘walk with Christ’ is to inform others to be aware. God bless Today in the Word and Moody Bible Institute!”
— Barb, Norwalk, OH
“For someone who never had a normal life (family), you’re my family: the body of Christ. It’s always good to receive my Today in The Word, month to month, and the love of Jesus keeps me growing, learning, and desiring to be more like Jesus. Thank you all for being my sisters and brothers in Christ. To God be the glory!”
— Valencia, Clearwater, FL
“Each morning I start my day in God’s Word, and Today In the Word uplifts and encourages me as I go along. I have been saved nine years (since October 2003), and although I still struggle financially and physically, I know I can read God’s Word and be encouraged by Today In The Word. I know that God is with me through every trial and tribulation I have. Thank you, and may God bless you.”
— Bonita, Kent, OH
“[By reading Today in the Word], I came to understand God’s Word in ways I could never imagine. Thank you for this ministry.”
— Robert, Dundee, IL
“I look forward to my quiet times every morning with God, the Bible, and my Today in the Word devotional. It is always timely for what is going on in my life—just the word I need for the day! It was most precious to me when my husband went to heaven in January 2004. The day of his graveside service, Today in the Word centered around Joshua 1:7–9. Just the word I needed to give me hope and courage when I was feeling so overwhelmed. It continues to be a blessing to me every day and I am so thankful for it. Bless you all!”
— Patricia, Pinehurst, ID
“All of the devotions are so very good and they encourage [us] to keep true to the Lord and to better understand the Word of God. [Our] grandson and his wife both graduated from Moody. Thank you for your ministry!”
— Carl and Peggy, Santan Valley, AZ
“I have faithfully kept up and used Today in the Word as a daily devotional for over 20 years! It is concise, organized, practical, easy to comprehend, and uplifting. I look forward to it every day. It has been on many excursions with me, including taking it to work and sharing tidbits with the residents at the senior living community where I am employed.”
— Larry, McHenry, IL
“I want to say thank you for sending copies of Today in the Word to me every month. After reading them, I pass them on to Chaplain Ben Malone at Mississippi Prison Correctional facility. Thank you for bringing words of Life and Light to a dark and lost place of humanity.”
— Mike, Madison, MS
