Back in June, I began reading the Bible with Genesis and have continued on through the Old Testament in order. I would like to complete the entire Bible in one year, not so much as a goal, but to keep me consistent in reading and understanding the Word of God each day. I’m interested in how the Scriptures speak to my everyday life, and applying them, particularly as a new husband.
Is there anyone out there who has undertaken a similar reading plan ? I would love to discuss what I’m reading with any or all of you as we go along in this journey. I’m reading the Good News Translation, but have purchased a couple of study bibles in the NIV to help with background as I go along.
I’m currently up to 1 Samuel, but came across this verse in James that I thought was particularly appropriate…
Do not deceive yourselves by just listening to his word; instead, put it into practice.” – James 1:22 (GNT)
