The New Testament!

Hallelujah! I'm so excited! About a year and a half ago, I started reading through the New Testament. I slowly chugged along for about a year until Christmastime when I really buckled down. At that time I was in the Gospel of John. Just this morning, I finished Revelation! Reading through the gospels, I was blessed to learn more detail about the life of Jesus and how much he endured on the cross to save us from our sin. It was truly amazing to read through what Paul was writing to all the churches while he was in prison and how he persevered. Revelation was a bit confusing. It was a bit foreign to me but at the same time it was amazing to read about the end times and the future. This left such a confused impression on me that I had a weird dream last night about the end times.

This morning I had six chapters left and I was planning on reading three this morning and two tomorrow but when I was done with the first three I was so excited for finishing that I just read the remaining three chapters. I want to encourage everyone who is reading this to read the Bible, or even just the New Testament at first, all the way. It is really worth it and it can be done no matter your age.

Old Testament and rereading the New Testament, here I come!

  5. I'm currently reading through "The Daily Bible." It's a very good chronological Bible, very easy to understand, and it is separated into daily chunks that are between 3 to 7 pages a day. I highly recommend it!
