I’m glad you are reading the bible with us this year! I believe there is no single activity a human being can invest in that is more profitable and transforming than to read and meditate on God’s Word, the bible.
Each week we will post a blog with some thoughts about the week’s reading, and in so doing hopefully contribute to your understanding and appreciation of the chapters you’ve read.
Here’s the most important thing: Don’t Give Up!!!! If you get behind just pick it up wherever you can. Don’t get discouraged, reading half or three fourths is way better than quitting! So come on, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. You’re about to embark on a journey to discover how great and merciful and gracious our God is, you’re about to get your arms around the story of Jesus. You will be humbled and amazed by how much he loves you.
While you’re at it take advantage of the videos created by The Bible Project. They are really helpful and will speed up your understanding of what you’re reading.
Go ahead, start reading. It’s OK with me if you get a head start.
