If your fiancé sent you a letter, would you read it? Only once, or would it be a couple times? God has given us His love letter–The Bible. Have you ever read the entire book cover to cover? What a better way for anyone to start out the New Year resolution list with reading through the Bible.
This past year Priscilla and I have done just that and it has been one of the sweetest times of fellowship together and with the Lord. There is no better investment than to take time in the eternal Word of God. If there is anything I could encourage a new believer to do it is to get in the book. Someone once said, “Either the book will keep you from sin or sin will keep you from the Book.” Oh, how true that is. In Scripture David stated it this way, “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee” (Psalm 119:11).
The following Bible Checklist is very similar to the one I first used. It allowed me to record at any place I might be reading in the Bible instead of getting discouraged because I lost my place or wanted to read in the New Testament instead of Old Testament. By simply reading three chapters a day and five on Sunday, the entire Bible can be read in just one year. What a small investment of time for such a valuable treasure.
