David Servant – “Why I Do This”

David Servant

This website highlights the Bible-teaching ministry of David Servant. It exists to serve God-seekers, people who want to follow Jesus. Scripture says,

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you – James 4:8

God is not hiding. He’s revealed himself through His creation, through everyone’s conscience, and through His Word, the Bible. But He doesn’t force Himself upon anyone. Rather, He humbly waits to be sought. He wants relationships, not robots.

Who is David Servant?

Family-Style Devotions

Picture of David's devotional, Family-Style Devotions

Family-Style Devotions is a family devotional that centers on the life of Christ.  It touches most everything written about Him in the four Gospels.

As a home-schooling dad, David Servant discovered that most Christian resources that were available for family devotions seemed to focus solely on teaching ethics or life lessons. As valuable as these things are, David wanted to teach his children about Jesus and Scripture (which certainly includes a lot of ethics and life lessons, but also a whole lot more).

So David set himself to the task of writing the Christ-centered family devotional he desired for his family. Each daily devotional includes questions for parents to provoke discussion with their children. You can subscribe to the devotional for free.
