Luke 20:20-26

20So they watched Him, and sent spies who pretended to be righteous, in order that they might catch Him in some statement, so that they could deliver Him to the rule and the authority of the governor.21They questioned Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You speak and teach correctly, and You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth.22“Is it lawful for us to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?”23But He detected their trickery and said to them,24“Show Me a denarius. Whose likeness and inscription does it have?” They said, “Caesar’s.”25And He said to them, “Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.”26And they were unable to catch Him in a saying in the presence of the people; and being amazed at His answer, they became silent.

LightbulbTips on spending devotional time with God

There are many methods to quieting ourselves to spend devotional time with God. Below are several suggestions to approaching spending time with God.

  1. Set a time. We’ve all heard it said that it takes between 21 days to three weeks for something to become a habit. Set aside a time for devotions that will allow you to be consistent most days during your week. In the bible, most Christians spent morning hours with God—meeting God before meeting men. However, if the morning isn’t a convenient time, choose a time of day that will allow you to be consistent.
  2. Locate an area free of distraction. When Jesus spent time with God, He usually went off by Himself to spend quiet, alone time with God. We should follow His example. When we sit down to meditate on the word of God, we should do this without interruptions from the television and phone.
  3. Read God’s word. Reading God’s word during devotional time is beneficial for several reasons. Firstly, it allows us a subject upon which we can meditate; secondly, we are commanded in the bible to “put on the full armor of God.” That armor is the word of God. Thirdly, the reply we are waiting on from God can come in the form of scripture.
