2017 Bible Reading Challenge

As we begin this challenge, remember the WORD should be a light to you, a revelation of God’s love and plan for you.  As you read these passages each day, consider a few things:

  1. What does this passage say to me?
  2. What does this teach me about God?
  3. What does this teach me about myself?
  4. How can I live out what I have discovered?
  5. Who can I share this revelation with today?

May God richly bless you as we explore the WORD together in this coming year.
