Several months ago, I challenged you to commit to read your Bible every day for thirty days. Several of you agreed to do so. In fact, since the arrival of the New Year some of you have re-committed to this challenge as part of your resolutions.
What a great idea! In fact, I think we should join you. We could all benefit from laying a solid foundation for 2009 by jump-starting our prayer and devotional lives.
And, I’m willing to sweeten the deal. I will give a brand new ESV study Bible to the first reader who commits to take the 30-day challenge. The second person to commit will receive a free copy of Lies Young Women Believe. And the third will get a Lies Young Women Believe Companion Guide. Be sure to fill in the email address line with your comment so we can contact you for your shipping address.
But, don’t take this challenge for the goodies. Take it because you want a heavy dose of Truth straight from God’s Word.
Not sure where to start? Here are a few ideas:
- Read a Proverb a day for the whole month. There are 31 days in January and 31 chapters in the book of Proverbs. Seems like a great fit!
- Start the Lies Young Women Believe Companion Guide. It includes daily individual study that goes along with the information in Lies Young Women Believe. You can order your copy here.
- Do a character study. Find an individual from the Bible that you’d like to learn more about (some of my favorites are Elisha, Ruth, and Peter). Read as much as you can about that individual. How can you apply what you’ve learned about their life to your own?
So, what do you think? Will you start 2009 by committing to spend time with the Lord in His Word every day for the next thirty days?
I can’t wait to hear from you.
