January 1-7

New Year, new you; isn’t that the way we are sold on our annual calendar flipping?  While you may lose out on resolutions here and there, one thing that is not a resolution but rather a discipline of the Christian is the study of the Word of God.

My goal with this space each week will be twofold.  First, I will give you a reading list for the week that if followed; will allow you to read the Bible in its entirety this calendar year.  Second, I will recap what you may or may not have read the previous week.  I’m doing the second one for two reasons: first, if you read it and didn’t understand it; I want you to not give up but rather have a resource available that helps you continue in your study; second, if you missed any of the reading I don’t want you to quit because you are behind and overwhelmed.  Think of the summary as a Cliff Notes version that you can use to keep up and allow you to stay on track.

This is not meant to be a beating, but rather a tool to give you some help in reading and understanding God’s word.  If you miss a day, and can “catch up: by doubling up, then sweet.  If you can’t read on certain days, adjust the schedule to fit your life.  I think you will find the schedule pretty easy to maintain if you keep just a bit of discipline.

With that said…………….
