We Did It!

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.”        Isaiah 40:8

Earlier…back on January 5, we attempted to read through the Bible, as a family, for 90 days. Well, it took us 100 days, but by God’s grace…we did it, and it was such a blessing to our family! The Lord opened our eyes to things we had not remembered, or even heard of, in years (We all have our favorites, right?).

Well, please know that we were very excited about doing this, but have also wondered why we haven’t done this sooner, you know? In the scheme of things, our whole life revolves around Jesus Christ, the living Word. We know him more by reading His Word. So, was 100-150 hours (roughly the time it took) a huge sacrifice? The more we read, the more we wanted to. We are now attempting to read the Bible in chronological order (according to when the individual books were written), for thirty minutes a night. We should finish by the end of the year, Lord willing.

I am thankful for all that the LORD has to teach us! Please also know that we are motivated to read the Bible out of love for Jesus, whom we believe saved us. We do not believe we can save ourselves through any work that we do.

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.”                                      Ephesians 2:8-9

    A lot of reading in 100 days.

    We did ours by listening to recorded tapes a few years ago, for several weeks.
