In our house this year, the tree and all the decorations came down on December 26. My husband is going to be working on the living room walls and ceiling during his Christmas holiday break from school. We are replacing tree/nativity sets/lights with paint cans/sheet rock dust/tarps/plastic . . .
Perhaps you have seen the “venture for 2019” — the Read Through the Bible in 2019. And you just passed over it because Friday afternoons just don’t work in your schedule to attend a zoom classroom discussion time. There is another option!
Each Friday I will post here on the Beloved Truth blog, with thoughts about the week’s readings, maybe even a question or two for discussion. You can comment here on the blog with what God is teaching you through His Word. It’s not live discussion, but it is participating together — an opportunity to encourage each other to dig in to God’s Word
Hebrews 10:23-25 CSB – 23 Let us hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, since he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us watch out for one another to provoke love and good works, 25 not neglecting to gather together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day approaching.
It is not necessary to register on EventBrite for this option. Following are some details to get you started:
We will be reading the “Blended Plan” for reading through the Bible in a year. You can find it here https://www.blueletterbible.org/dailyreading/index.cfm
ore even here https://www.bible.com/reading-plans/8
We will begin on January 1, 2019 (if you subscribe on BlueLetterBible, you must subscribe on January 1 for the daily readings to be in sync). You choose the translation you prefer. You choose if you will read or listen to the audio. You choose the time of day (or multiple increments).
Then, start reading. If you miss a day or two, don’t give up. Just jump back in on the current day. Then, as we comment on the weekly blog posts, we can encourage each other with what we are learning, and how God is renewing our minds. When Jesus prayed for his disciples (and us) in the garden, just before his betrayal, he said:
John 17:14-17 CSB – 14 “I have given them your word. The world hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 15 “I am not praying that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16 “They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17 “Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.”
What an incredible gift! Let’s open it together, and mine the riches of His Word.
I am looking forward to hearing from you next week, as we discuss days 1-3.
