It's that time of year again when we make resolutions. As we think about the beginning of 2022, one item that we should resolve to do is to read the Bible, and spend more time with the Lord in His Word.
Now, there are two approaches to daily Bible-reading: reading for intimacy or reading for familiarity. Intimacy with the Bible comes by slow, meditative reading that focuses on small portions—deep study of books, chapters, and verses. Familiarity with the Bible comes through faster reading of larger portions—for example, reading the entire sweep of the biblical narrative in one year.
It's been my experience that Christians thrive on a healthy mixture of the two. We should seek to be familiar with the whole Bible, and we should get deep into a particular book. To that end, we invite you to read the Bible with us this year. Together, as a church, we are reading for familiarity using the 5 Day Bible Reading Program. Additionally, we’ll be taking a deep dive into Revelation together.
First, let’s talk about the “5 Day Bible Reading Program.” It has several features that are really helpful, especially if you are just doing this for the first time!
The 5 Day Bible Reading Program is a free download and is available for you to download and print off immediately. We will also have some of these plans printed off for you to grab a copy on Sunday!
This year, we are taking a deep dive into the book of Revelation. There is an upcoming Sunday Morning Tenet Talk diving into the book of Revelation with Pastor Tyler. In addition, we recommend that you grab the following devotional book on Revelation: Exalting Jesus in Revelation. You can download the book as a Kindle file or order the paperback copy. This is a devotional book with thirty-two chapters detailing the various visions and seals of the book of Revelation, and it includes reflection questions at the end of each chapter. We will be reading one chapter each week together as a church for the next thirty-two weeks, and we'll be talking about the book of Revelation each Sunday morning in Pastor Tyler’s Tenet Talk.
Whatever you do, let’s be sure to get into the routine of spending time with the Lord in His Word this year. Happy New Year!
