How did you do with your Bible reading this week? Were you able to do at least one chapter every day? I hope you have found, like me: It’s really not that difficult to do! I know I feel closer to the Lord when I’m daily in His Word. Psalm 1:2 ”But they delight in the law of the LORD, meditating on it day and night.” The only way to know what God wants us to do is to study His Word (the Bible).
So, now we need to know what book of the Bible we should be reading. I have several recommendations. The first is in the New Testament. It is the book of John. John was one of Jesus’ disciples and what better way to learn about Jesus then from someone who walked with Him? Anything in red is something that Jesus said. John tells about Jesus’ life and explains things as he goes along. Matthew, Mark and Luke also tell the story of Jesus. My second recommendation is in the Old Testament. It is the book of Ruth. It is a great book for explaining Faith and Determination. My third recommendation: The book of Job, also found in the Old Testament. This is a book that discusses Suffering and Faith in the Lord. My fourth recommendation, in the Old Testament once again, is the book of Psalms. It is a collection of poems and songs and is very uplifting.
If you are trying to finish the Bible in a year, there are many sites on line to help you with a reading schedule to accomplish your goal. One site is: EWordToday, another one is: BibleGateway. Reading the whole Bible in a year is a wonderful goal!
Besides following a plan, it’s also a good idea to be accountable to someone. Have a friend, family member or a Life Coach check on you daily to make sure you are reading God’s Word.
Your homework for this week: Ask someone to keep you accountable in regard to your goal; specifically, to read the Bible daily.
Next week we will be talking more about various books of the Bible.
