Each section in the None But the Hungry Heart series contains one hundred or more interrelated Scripture portions, as well as more than one hundred quotations and comments.

In meditating upon this material, our attention should be centered in the Word of God. It is hoped that each page may give enlightenment concerning the Scripture quoted. “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom,” for “the Word of God is living, and powerful” (Col. 3:16; Heb. 4:12).

All true devotional reading should give us a greater understanding of, and appreciation for our Bible. Anything other than this will hinder spiritual growth. It goes without saying that the Word of God, ministered by the Spirit of God, is the primary means of knowing the Son of God as our life. “The words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63).

“And now I commend you to God and to the word of His grace. He is able to build you up and to give you your inheritance among His people” (Acts 20:32, Wey.).
