I thank God for you – the readers who are reading today.
I thank God for those who have written devotions for us for the past two and a half years – and for those who will commit to writing a week in the New Year ahead.
I thank God for what He has done and what He will do! For me. For my family. For the Church of God. For God’s World and for His Plan for the Ages. He is always at work!
I thank God for revealing himself through His Word! How incredible that He has chosen to share Himself with me – and you – there in each and every page, chapter and verse of His Inspired Word.
God can choose to reveal himself in an earthquake, fire or thunder from heaven. And, sometimes He has and He does and He will. But more often – each and every day – He is ready to reveal Himself – His love, His faithfulness, His majesty, His holiness, His righteousness, His wisdom, His commands, His Son, His plan of salvation, His light, His life, His Coming Kingdom. God reveals himself to those who seek Him in His Holy Word.
I am excited about a New Year starting this week and I would love to encourage you to join with us at grow16Biblereading.wordpress.com in reading through the New Testament (as well as Proverbs and various theme weeks). We will be reading one chapter from the Bible every day and you can sign up to receive daily devotions based on the chapter assigned for that day. Each week we will get to hear the thoughts of another Church of God writer to guide us in seeking Him in His Word. If you wish to sign up for the daily emails visit https://grow16biblereading.wordpress.com/. On your computer – click on the follow button in the right hand column. On your phone – click Menu, About and then the follow button.
The rest of this week we will be looking at the importance and benefits of God’s Word, and then on Sunday, January 6 we will jump into Matthew chapter 1, reading one chapter each day. We chose a Bible reading plan that would not be too challenging or daunting for any age or experience level, and could still be combined with another plan for those already committed to a different Bible reading plan. So grab a friend or family member, youth group or small group to help motivate and build accountability to together spend 2019 seeking Him in His Word.
