We only have 14 days of 2008 left! This year has flown by!
I know I have activities planned 11 of the next 14 days, so the New Year seems far off, but it really isn't!
Most people make some type of New Year's Resolution. Most people break their resolution by the second or third week of the new year. But this coming year I want to challenge you to read through your bible.
Our church has set forth the challenge to read the bible cover to cover in 2009. They are hoping the whole church reads and each Sunday the sermon will cover something we've read that week.
I will be reading the bible cover to cover this year. This will be the third time I've read straight through and I am looking forward to reading again.
There are lots of ways to read through the bible. I've read cover to cover with the help with Bible Pathway, a daily devotional to give you perspective on what you will be reading. I've also read the Chronological Bible, which is a fascinating way to read through.
You could also buy the bible on MP3 or CD's.
Here is an on-line reading schedule to read cover to cover. Or you can read a little bit of Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs each day.
If you've never taken the time to read through the bible, make 2009 the year you commit to read the bible cover to cover!
(If you're interested, our pastor has spent the last three Sunday's sharing the importance of reading through the bible. You can listen to past sermons: HERE!)
