"But those who obey God's word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did." (1John 2:5-6 NLT).
Reading God's book, the Bible, is the best way to learn more about God. As we desire to love God more, our hearts turn towards wanting to obey him and to please him through our lives. As we read God's word, we begin to understand his will and the Spirit begins to shape our lives to reflect that will.
This year, we are inviting you to join us in a discovery of God's Word. Scripture Union has several Bible reading plans available. One of the plans available is called, "Encounter with God". It is a free daily devotion that guides you through God's word. If you would like to participate, you can access the devotion online here or you can purchase the devotion as an pdf ePub or Kindle ebook for a nominal fee. You can also sign up to receive daily emails.
Our children are also taking a Bible challenge this year. They will be following the same reading schedule as the "Encounter With God" schedule. We hope this will allow families to journey together and spend time discussing what they read .For a copy of their reading challenge,
We invite you to set aside a time and place each day to read the Bible, and ask the Holy Spirit to help you understand and apply what you read.
