Dear Friends in Christ,
“But as for you, continue in what you have learned and firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it, and how from childhood you have known the sacred writings that are able to instruct you for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus” 2 Timothy 3:14-15)
In 2 Timothy, St. Paul reminds Timothy to continue to lead by drawing from the strength of Sacred Scripture. It appears that Timothy has been drawing from the well of God’s Word since his childhood. Reading and reflecting on Scripture is a lifelong discipline, and my hope is that you continue to dwell in God’s Word long after 2019 the Year of Scripture ends. In fact, why not begin to develop a Bible reading and reflecting plan to be ready for your next adventure in the Sacred Scriptures. I am working on a plan to slowly read through the New Testament in 2020.
The Discipleship Journal features a 5×5 New Testament Reading Plan that builds in times of reading and times for reflecting. 5 minutes a day for 5 days a week will lead you through the entire New Testament. Click on the link below to check it out.
