We can go to church. We can spend time with Christian friends. But nothing can take the place learning about God through reading the Bible. Every day, if possible, we should be spending time reading the Bible.
Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. – John 17:17 (NIV)
The Bible is awesome. It tells us about God. The Bible can help us get to know God in a deeper way. And we should be wanting to get to know the Bible.
This year, challenge yourself to spend some time in the Bible. If you haven’t before, consider reading all the way through the Bible this year. A lot can be learned by spending some time in God’s word. You can see God in different ways when you read passages you haven’t read before or passages you haven’t read in awhile.
Also, don’t let yourself be intimidated by reading the Bible. It is a big book, but if you take in small sections each day, you can get through the whole thing in a year or two.
Goal #5- Am I willing to read through the whole Bible this year?
Choose to make the reading of God’s word a priority in your life. You’ll be excited to see what you learn and how you grow as you spend time reading the Bible. Don’t wait, make reading the Bible this year a big goal for you!
