Wow. Seven years.
From the very beginning, this site was intended to be a place to encourage Bible reading and scripture memorization. For my personal growth, it has helped me to stay accountable to my Bible study routine. For those of you who read and study along with the thoughts I post here, I appreciate your comments and sharing and requests to reuse the material.
This week is the seven year anniversary of the first post I made on this site! (March 5th) It was a simple post that took me a few hours to get just right. It simply answered the question, “Why should I read my Bible?” Since seven is thought to represent a perfect number in the Bible, I’m going to consider this a milestone year and celebrate a little.
First, a reprint of that post:
Why should I read my Bible?
- To easily detect misuse of Scripture (Matthew 4:5-7)
- To be ready to answer tough questions (1 Peter 3:15)
- It has all we need to guide us (2 Timothy 3:16)
- It fills our minds with good things (Philippians 4:8)
- To show God you care (2 Timothy 2:15)
Second, this is the 7th anniversary, so we need two more in the list:
6. It causes our faith to grow (Romans 10:17)
7. It is dangerous not to mature spiritually (Hebrews 6:1-7)
Read your Bibles daily.
Memorize some of it, and learn where to find the rest of it.
Eventually, it will become a real habit.
Eventually, you will become an expert.
