2010 and New Year's Resolution

Here we are, now 2010!! .... I can only join with many others in saying, "where has the past year gone!!"

I wish you a safe and happy New Year for 2010.

A number of different blogs are sharing their resolutions or plans for the year. So I thought I'd share mine.

Being a Christian, the Bible is the most important Book for truth, faith, wisdom and counsel. It's reported that many Christian's have never read the Bible in it's entirity, let alone every year. I was challenged by this and over the past few days of prayer and thought, it kept coming to my mind "the washing of the Word". A thought from this verse "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word" Ephesians 5:25, 26

So that has become my New Years resolution - to read the whole Bible in a year. I'm following six booklets called "Cover to Cover" which came out in 1999, with Selwyn Hughes and Trevor J Partridge. It will take me through the Bible in chronolgocial order.

Today my reading started off with:

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God." John 1:1, 2

"Before the mountains were brought forth, Or ever You had formed the earth and the world, Even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God." Psalm 90:2

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Genesis 1:1

  1. My mother had this as her resolution last year when she bought herself a large print Bible. I never asked her if she made it or not.

    Enjoy 2010 and may it bring you much happiness!
