As most people are making New Year’s Resolutions, there’s none better than committing to read the Bible through in a year. It’s easier than you think, but harder than you realize!

With today being January 1, why not get the New Year started off right? Read the Bible today and everyday for a year. I promise you that this time next year you’ll be glad you did! Why not join with 2 or 3 other folks and hold one another accountable? And while you’re at it, how about committing to not only reading Scripture, but also to memorizing it as well? One verse a week for a year means 52 verses memorized!
Blessings to you in 2013. Whether you walk through the valley of the shadow of death, or whether you experience great and glorious blessings, may your walk with Jesus be deeper and sweeter than ever!
