The Bible Reading Plan: Southern Seminary Style is a challenge to all Christians to read through the entire Bible during the month of January. The author suggests, however, if you start now it will make it easier to finish the Bible by the end of January. Are you Game? What are you waiting for? I am going to begin tonight. There is a link at the top of the Said at Southern Seminary blog to the Bible Reading Challenge so others can discuss their progress. Here are some Scripture verses that I hope will motivate you.
10 The brothers immediately sent Paul and Silas away by night to Berea, and when they arrived they went into the Jewish synagogue. 11Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.
4For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.
1 Timothy 4:12-13
12 Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 13Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching
2 Timothy 3:16
16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.
Are you up to the challenge. You have little to lose and a lot to gain.
May we embrace this endeavor and may it edify us.
