I’m NOT going to give you verses each day–there’s too many other sources for that, and to be honest, why waste my blog on what amounts to simple recitation–albeit thru writing?
Twelve years ago, at age 56, I started a wonderful new relationship–with GOD(& Jesus). A question I’ve had over the years– when others seemed to “fall by the way-side”, how did I sustain my relationship and make it grow? It didn’t take long to come up with an answer: I read the Bible!
I have a degree from a major university. I’ve taken all kinds of Philosophy courses. Throughout the years I was convinced that the Bible was anything but a guide for everyday living. Then, and I won’t get into the “whys” or the “wherefores”, I tried it when nothing else could help me. Boy, did it ever help ! Now, I’ll state unequivocally: THE BIBLE IS THE GREATEST BOOK EVER WRITTEN.
So, yes, my goal is to tweak your interest enough to get you to read it. And, if you approach it with an open-mind, RELAX, and let God do the rest.
My articles will have some tips on how to read the Bible (Hint–the best place to start might not be the beginning!). Others revolve around applying it to questions of everyday living. And, you’ll see some stories of important Biblical events as they are reported on scene by a modern-day reporter. I hope to make these events come to life–as if they were happening right now!
With that in mind–if you have any doubts–just enjoy! Please use the “comments” section–I do respond to each of them. Your privacy( and your web address) will be respected.
