Get to grips with the Bible – reading it through
The Bible itself tells us that God’s Word is essential for daily living and is suitable for both correction and inspiration. (2 Timothy 3:16), so we want to encourage you with a challenge for 2014, to read through the whole of the Bible in the year, or better still to read parts of it through several times.
I was once challenged by God when I was asked to be a guarantor for some business colleagues; when I was reading Proverbs 6 he showed me that this was a risky idea and that I should think again about what I had agreed to or face the consequences. It hadn’t occurred to me that I was doing a wrong think until I saw it written in the Bible; what other things do we do which are contrary to the guidance given in God’s word and which put us at risk.
The more of God’s word that we read the better equipped we will be for the challenges of life and it will help us make adjustments to the way that we live so that we become better people.
