I believe the Word of God should be read and it should be studied. Many believers study the Bible in Sunday School classes and/or small groups, but I don’t believe many of them read daily and I’ve heard it is a small portion who have read through the entire Bible even once, let alone several times. How about you?
In 1997, I began a new tradition. In odd numbered years I read through the entire Bible. In even numbered years, I read the New Testament four times. Since 2005 is a year to read through the Bible, I’d like to encourage you to join me. Here’s a link to a PDF document on the Purpose Driven Life web site that gives a reading schedule.
I hope you’ll come along for a beautiful journey.
