Reading through the Bible
As 2009 draws to a close, I am reminded of a commitment I tried to make year after year to read the Bible from cover to cover. The Bible tells us that "All Scripture is God breathed." To me that means that everything in the Bible applies to my relationship with God. As part of my commitment to Christ, I feel that it is important that I have read what his words tell me. Christ died on the cross for my sins and I haven't "found" time to read what his love letter, the Bible, has to tell.
This always seems like such a duanting task. Reading the WHOLE Bible. Wow! That's a lot of pages... But when I read that the entire Bible can be read in 90 days by reading just 12 pages a day, I thought I can do that. 12 pages is reasonable. 90 days, 3 months, I can do that.
Then when I heard about the weekly Twitter party and the support that would be given to participants through weekly videos and other bloggers, I was hooked. A group of people working together to read the entire Bible.
Will you join me tomorrow as I begin to read the Bible from cover to cover in 90 days? Link up at Mom's Toolbox.
