Last year I read through the Bible from cover to cover for the first time in my life…I didn’t try to study; I just wanted to read the whole Bible. I completed my reading in November and began again in December; this time with the goal of spending a little time focusing on the areas that capture my attention as I read. The way I enjoy reading the Bible is to listen through an audio version while reading along and highlighting or underlining verses that jump out at me and then go back and try to spend some time meditating on those verses.
This time I started in Genesis and read through Genesis and Exodus but then switched to chronological. I’m surprised by the things that are standing out to me this time that I apparently glossed over last year. How good is God to open up new things to us at just the right time? It truly is like peeling an onion…we must continue working out our salvation with fear and trembling.
Have you ever read the Bible?
Which reading plan do you prefer?
Soon I will begin writing again and working through some of the things that are really standing out to me.
