Bible Reading Part III - Final

This is the third and final post in this unintended series on reading the Bible. I apologize for taking all week to post it.

As some of you know I’ve been reading my Bible chronologically. When I decided to do this I sent out a call to join me in this endeavor (read your Bible in a year) on Facebook. Sadly, only two sweet women joined me. Now, I’d like to send this call out again. You may join me in this (even if you are currently reading your Bible according to some other plan) by leaving a comment and letting me know you would like to do so or you may send me a message on Facebook. Every week I will try to post the passages that I will be reading for the week. I encourage you to join with us. Even if you do not comment, please prayerfully consider making this a priority in your life.

If you are a Christian, this should be a priority. It is not really an option. It is, as my husband has been teaching us on Sunday mornings, one of the spiritual disciplines of a Christian. It doesn’t make you a Christian, but it is one of the disciplines that will lead to growth as a Christian (and without which it is very difficult to grow spiritually as a Christian).

Readings will be listed Sunday through Saturday with a look ahead at the following Sunday (so that you can read Sunday on Saturday if you would like to). I will try to post on Saturday or Sunday at the latest.

Note: If you use these passages, you will be reading about King Solomon.

Feel free to jump in and read along with me. I would also love to hear your thoughts on the passages or hear about what you are currently reading.

Meditate on This:

I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways. I will delight in your statues; I will not forget your word. – Psalm 119:15-16

Make me understand the way of your precepts, and I will meditate on your wonderous works. –Psalm 119:27

I will lift up my hands toward your commandments, which I love, and I will meditate on your statues. –Psalm 119:48

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in His law he mediates day and night. –Psalm 1:1-2

P.S. Just in case you are curious here are a few of the primary Spiritual Disciplines that should be a part of your life as a maturing Christian – prayer, confession, fasting, biblical meditation, worship, fellowship, teaching, and service.
