E-MIN Founder
Randall Vaughn

"I felt that if I couldn't find five minutes a day out of my schedule to commit to God, something was very SERIOUSLY out of order in the choice of priorities for my life."

At about age twenty one, I made a decision that would change my life forever and have impact beyond anything I could ever have imagined. I made a solemn promise to God that I would read at least 5 minutes in the Bible every day. This would be for the rest of my life --no conditions-- no exceptions.

I cannot begin to express the benefit this commitment has been in my life. Regardless of circumstances, situations, feelings, pressures, etc., it is very difficult to get very far away from God if you know you have to spend 5 minutes with Him!

Some days I just didn't feel like it. Some days, I just didn't want to. Some days, I felt I just didn't have the time. But I had made a promise, and a promise is a promise "in my book", so I did it.

There were days when 5 minutes felt like more than I could do. But I made the time because I had made the promise. Looking back over 25 years of experience, I can say without hesitation that every minute has been worth it.

I believe people should spend much more than 5 minutes with God each day, but for a "no conditions, no exceptions" commitment, this is a good place to start. A person can find 5 minutes if they really want to.

If you cannot spend 5 minutes a day with God, look closely at your priorities, because something is wrong!

My life has been enriched beyond measure by this simple commitment. This commitment has also been key in the foundation of E-MIN -- spending time with God, even if it is only a few minutes a day.

The E-MIN daily message takes only about one minute to read and pray. Not very much you might say, but in many cases, it is more than people were doing before. And more importantly, it establishes a habit and a principle in their lives. It becomes as indispensable as their morning cup of coffee.

I hope you will go a step further and consider making this "one time for a lifetime" commitment to read 5 minutes in the Bible every day as I did. If you are serious about growing in your relationship with God, do not hesitate. Do it today.

But understand this:  It is serious, it is real, and it is for the rest of your life.

This is something you will have to do on your own.  E-MIN will not do it for you. You will have to get your Bible and follow through with the promise you make to God.

It is your responsibility to keep your promise.

If you are willing to make that commitment today, make it "official" by submitting your e-mail address in the link below.

You won't get daily e-mails from us, or even reminders.  It will simply "seal" your commitment and E-MIN will be a confidential witness of that commitment.

This is a very serious and solemn commitment.

You are promising God that you will read at least 5 minutes in the Bible every day -- no exceptions -- no conditions -- if you are conscious, it applies -- for the rest of your life. It applies regardless of convenience, hardship, circumstance, environment, other people, or any other thing.

From my own experience, I can attest that it is one of the most valuable things you will ever do.

 The 5-For-Life Promise: 

LORD, I promise to read at least 5 minutes in the Bible every day for the rest of my life.   The only exception to the performance of this promise shall be if I am not conscious or if I am unable to read due to a physical condition or illness.

As a witness of this promise, I will enter my e-mail address in the box below and click the "Seal the Promise" button.  Upon clicking the button, this promise shall be considered "in effect" and E-MIN shall be a "silent" and confidential witness of the promise that I make to You this day.

You can send a comment if you wish, but it is not necessary:

This is a promise between you and God.  It is not a message list from E-MIN.  We will not send you reminders about this promise.  It is your responsibility to fulfill it.
