Parson to Person: 7 easy steps to God

Last week we began to discuss the importance of having a time of personal daily devotions. Speaking on this subject, D.L. Moody said, "A man can no more take in a supply of grace for the future than he can eat enough for the next six months, or take sufficient air into his lungs at one time to sustain life for a week. We must draw upon God's boundless store of grace from day to day as we need it." That's true.
