One of my goals in January was to complete reading the entire Bible by the end of the year. I carefully selected a different version of the Bible to read this time. Studying from a different version of Scripture can breathe new meaning into a passage. This has been such a blessing as I have read over familiar passages, in a different version of Scripture.
I’m ahead of schedule. Now that I have reached Paul’s epistles, it occurs to me how much I have enjoyed reading God’s story. It’s been a blessing, and a daily conversation with my Heavenly Father. I’m already looking forward to doing it again.
Reading every part of this amazing book has been a blessing. Of course we go to the Psalms when we are sad, or want to praise our Lord, and the Proverbs for wisdom. But every single book focuses on one main theme, presented in a different way – God’s redemptive process. We all need it. And it’s a gift we can all enjoy.
You don’t have to wait for a certain date on the calendar to begin reading God’s Holy Word. He’s here to talk to you any time. Why not now?
