If you are following the 2011 Bible Reading Plan I have promoted in my devotional blog, you have now finished your second cycle through the Gospels. I trust that you are on a glorious journey that will lead you to a deeper and more rewarding relationship with Jesus than you have ever known before.
This plan calls for two more cycles through the Gospels this year, and I want to encourage you to continue on. What a joy it is to saturate our spirits with the life and love, ministry and teaching, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior!
With that said, I will not be blogging on the Gospels for the time being. Rather, since I will be preaching this summer in my church, Portland Christian Center, through the book of Proverbs, I will also be bringing devotionals each day during the months of July and August from this wonderful collection of God-breathed wise sayings . So I would like to invite you to add to your daily Bible reading by including a chapter in Proverbs each day.
Proverbs has thirty-one chapters—one for each corresponding day of the month. Beginning July 1, start with Proverbs 1, and allow the Holy Spirit inspired wisdom of King Solomon to fill your mind and inform your way. Following this daily plan will take you through Proverbs twice, which I think will produce a delightful and unforgettable summer experience for you.
Soli Deo Gloria!
“The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. And we must not select a few favorite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian.” ~A.W. Tozer
