Cycle #23 - Days Eleven to Twenty
It just so happened that on the night of day twenty, I was in church and heard a talk on 1 John 2:18-28. One of the main points of this talk was to stick with the original message of the gospel, and flowing from that was the application to read the Bible, and read it each day.
The Bible is the source of our guidance, and the source of our life.
Psalm 119:105 describes it as a light for our path. It lights up the darkness of life around us.
Anyway so I have been encouraged again to read the Bible and read it often.
Last time I had just finished the Pentateuch, which was 187 chapters and this time I was able to read:
Romans 1 - 3
This was a total of 80 chapters and so a running total of 267 chapters out of the 1189 in the Bible.
Reading the Bible is not just an activity to slip into your schedule for something to do, it is a life giving, encouraging activity which teaches, convicts, disciplines and moves us to a deeper walk in Jesus.
Read the Bible today!
