A New Year’s Note

  • January 2019 Issue
From the Editors

What better way to start the new year than with your encouraging letters! We always love hearing from our Today in the Word family. Thank you for joining us in opening God’s Word and growing in His truth. And a special thank you to those of you who financially support this Bible-centered ministry. Together, we can begin this year rooted and growing in God’s Word!

“Thank you so much for this wonderful tool. Even though I have a seminary education, its depth always teaches me something new. I enjoy the printed copy, highlighting pertinent information. Then I often pass it along to someone else. My favorite of those times was when you had an issue on salvation. I gave it to a young woman who was searching, and she came to know Jesus as her Savior. Watching her baptized was a highlight of my life. Thank you for this wonderful ministry.” —Carol

“Just wanted you to know I thoroughly enjoyed the August edition of Today in the Word following the life of Joseph. Even though it was a story of which I am well-acquainted, it put the events in such a practical, personal, God-ordained light and opened my eyes to seeing God in action.” —Pat

“I want to thank everyone who works on the Today in the Word emails. I never expected such a simple communication to have such an impact on me or cause me to be so thankful to our God in an unexpected way. He is faithful.” —Samuel

“WOW!! My 5-year-old daughter and I have literally physically been moved by God from Florida to the Great Smoky Mountains, and the Lord was talking to me about the ‘mountains and valleys’ of life for almost four weeks now since we arrived!! This month’s devotional is right on time.” —Stephanie

“Best study yet! There were days I felt I was reading an action novel! Couldn’t wait for the next day’s study! I ‘knew’ the story of Joseph, but now, I’m living the story of Joseph! Thank you SO much!” —Melissa

“I just read the mailbox letters for September, and I felt so sorry that I have not written to say how much this devotional study has helped to guide, restore, and make my walk more fruitful for Jesus Christ. Thanks to all who make this happen.” —Carole
