Every word of the Bible is living and will bring life to us even when we do not fully comprehend what we are reading. The Bible is our daily bread. To have a healthy spirit we have to have a well-balanced meal, and not just snack on familiar, topical, or even favorite portions.

The 2-tier approach:

Our year-long journey will take us through the New Testament three times and the Old Testament once. The pace works out to be around five chapters a day, out of five sections in the Bible. The New Testament readings are referred to as Tier One: Gospels/Acts and Epistles/Revelation. The Old Testament readings are referred to as Tier Two: History, Poetry, and Prophets.

Jesus is the fulfillment of all the Bible, so I would instruct you to immerse yourself in the New Testament passages daily and if you have the time, then go for the Old Testament passages.

Even though it’s broken up into 66 books, The Bible really is just ONE BOOK. By reading through both the New and Old Testaments simultaneously, we will grasp a deeper understanding of the heart of the Father and we are more likely to begin to SEE Jesus in every part of the Word. The Author, Himself longs to encounter you on every page.

Off we go!

That I May Know Him – Week 8

Salvation is by grace through faith. This week we in the Epistles will be a coupling of grace through faith. The word of God read and listened to, mixed with faith (our accepting what we are reading as truth), moves us into obedience (attentive hearing under) as we...

That I May Know Him – Week 6

This is the week of The Double Portion in Job. This week we begin doubling up on some portions of the Bible while not reading other portions. For instance, today we read Genesis 36 and 37, and leave out Job and Isaiah. We do this to help balance out the Bible sections...

That I May Know Him – Week 5

The word is our authority as the Spirit is our power. Jesus submitted to the word of God. The Word of God made flesh submitted to the word of God that was written. Upon Jesus’ baptism, the Holy Spirit led Him into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. When...

That I May Know Him – Week 4

The word of God cleanses me and sets me apart because it is Truth. Scriptures are the home of truth; truth is the path to freedom; and freedom is Jesus. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, and the only way to the Father. We are sanctified by the truth; God’s...

That I May Know Him – Week Three

OVERVIEW I live because I am fed by what He says. God’s daily bread for us is found in the word of God. When we read to Him His word, He speaks to us out of His word. We live by every word that comes out of the mouth of God. It's funny, we read His word and He speaks...
