Out of all of the spiritual disciplines, daily reading God’s Word has proven to me to be the most beneficial habit of my ongoing spiritual journey. Routinely, my habit has been to read through the whole Bible in even-numbered years and read the New Testament in odd-numbered years. The reason is that reading just the New Testament allows me to read at a slower pace and meditate longer over a particular passage. If you would like to join me in 2019, we have made some helps available on our church website, www.fbclaf.org.
Here’s the plan. Reading through the New Testament will begin on February 1, 2019. For the month of January, we will work on developing the discipline of reading by reading one chapter of Proverbs each day. The plan of reading a chapter a day will continue through the reading of the New Testament for the remainder of the year.
Each day, at www.fbclaf.org/rtb we will post a short devotional that goes with that day’s reading. I hope that you will join us.
