To The Word

How many times have you read through the Bible? I plead with you to make that important to you. “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth” (John 17:17). 

 If you don’t like to “jump” around, read Genesis to Revelation (which is my preference.) However, for those who prefer variety, there are many reading plans available. The Olive Tree Bible app has plans and so does Blue Letter Bible

You can also manage your reading tempo yourself by chapters, pages, or time. Find what works best for you. For chapters, to read through the Bible in a year, simply read three or four chapters a day. If the chapters are short, then read an extra one.  By pages, divide the number of pages in your Bible by 365. One of my Bibles has 1233 pages of Bible text. I would need to read 3.4 pages a day to finish in a year. I simplified it by reading four pages a day. 

Now that I’m not working a regular job, I have the luxury of a very long time with the Lord every day (Ahhhhhhhhh). Teri and I set the alarm for the same time every morning (including Sunday). It only takes a few minutes to get dressed and then I head for my office to start my Bible reading. I have a set time to move from reading to prayer and then a  set time for my Bible time to be over. I plead with you. Be committed to reading and praying. You won’t regret it. A man will always do what is important to him. 

“With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments”  (Psalm 119:10).
