From Jim’s Heart–Take the Challenge

At first impression, the Bible looks and feels like any other book. Yet it claims that God Himself inspired and directed its 40-plus different authors over a span of hundreds of years to produce a singular message of salvation for mankind. And despite the fact it is 2000 years old and it has faced countless attempts to destroy it, the Bible is the most popular book that has ever been printed.

These facts should give you pause for reflection. If the Bible is what it claims to be–a message from God about your eternal destiny–wouldn’t it be worth your time and effort to take this next year to look daily at its message? You will never know how significant the Bible is until you open it and read its contents for yourself. Take on the challenge of reading your Bible daily this year. It will be THE most profitable thing you do each day. Keep these suggestions in mind as you approach the Bible:

Realize the Bible’s usefulness (2 Peter 1:3).

Read with a mind open to the truth (2 Timothy 2:15).

Respond to the Bible’s message (John 3:16).

Resolve to live out the truths in the Bible (1 Samuel 12:24).

Reap the blessings of knowing and obeying God’s Word (Psalm 1:1-3).

To help you get started, I’m launching “In the Word Wednesday,” starting tomorrow, January 1, on our Facebook page. Each Wednesday, I will share a brief synopsis of one book of the Bible to help you become more acquainted with its themes and what it has to teach you today.

Also, don’t forget to visit my website (JimGeorge.com) to download a free “One-Year Daily Bible Reading Plan” and other helpful Bible study resources. (You’ll find them under the “Free Resources” tab.)

For a blessed New Year, commit to reading your Bible every day. “Blessed is the man” whose “delight is in the law of the LORD” (Psalm 1:1-2).

We’ve all struggled at one time or another with our ability to fully trust God. I never truly realized the extent to which I wrestled with Him over both the simplest of things, and the big things, until I had children. Yet, I would always hear Him whisper to my spirit, “I will protect them. Trust me.”
