In an age of Biblical ignorance... there is nothing sweeter to my ears!
As Jerome said, "To be ignorant of the Scriptures is to be ignorant of Christ."
I have personally taken up a challenge to read the 4 Gospels weekly for 3 months.
How are you going to step up your pursuit of Christ in 09?
Matthew 7:22-24 (New International Version)
22Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' 23Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!'
May we never hear those words from Jesus!
If you do decide to try something like reading the Bible in a year... may I suggest these 2 great on-line tools:
1) E Word Today... a one year Bible reading plan that offers 5 ways of reading the Bible including chronologically and historically. Click HERE to go and check it out.
2) You Version. This site offers the ability to organize, share, contribute and have community in your Bible study as well as a one year reading plan. (I have signed up with Youversion... and use it especially on my iphone). Click HERE to go and check it out.
Let us know how you are planning to increase your pursuit of Christ by leaving a comment.
