This weekend I preached from John 15:1-17 about the secret to a joyful life, which Jesus makes clear begins with abiding in Him. I challenged our church family to make a plan to spend time in His life-giving Word every day…
We need God’s Word to cleanse, influence, correct and encourage our hearts, minds and lives—every day. I think it’s helpful to remind ourselves why we need it, so in each service we read this declaration together as a church family. I hope it’s helpful to you as well.
This is my Bible.
I am who it says I am. Matthew 5:16
God’s Word is milk for my soul. 1 Peter 2:2
When I read God’s Word, it brings me joy. Jeremiah 15:16
I am a Bible-believing follower of Jesus Christ!
P.S. There are many ways to read through the Bible. One good source is ESV Bible Reading Plans. I encourage you to check it out.
