As you are well aware I have been promoting regular Bible reading among our members. There are many good reasons why this is so important. Let me continue with my theme.
Our faith centres around the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. While I certainly 100% acknowledge that we have the Spirits involvement in our everyday life, the best way to know Jesus is through the Bible. How else are we to get information about him and understand this central figure of our faith?
Over the last two and a half years I have made it a habit to read one Gospel over and over again. I’m now in the middle section of rereading Luke. I want to really know this Jesus that we so often talk about but don’t know intimately. I encourage you to think about doing the same. If you read a chapter a day, by a rule of thumb you will through it 12 times a year.
The bottom line is this; to know Jesus, really know Jesus you need to read about him constantly.
