Ephesians 5:15–17 (NKJV) — See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
It is hard to believe that in just a few hours 2016 will be over and yet another new year will begin. With each passing year we are one step closer to eternity and with it a full realization of all the glorious truths in the Scriptures which we have read about over the years.
The older I get and the more I see happening in our world, the more eagerly I anticipate that day. In the meantime, we must redeem the time well and there is no better way to do that than reading through the Bible, God’s word to mankind. It is one of the best ways we come to understand God’s will for our lives.
Tomorrow you will receive an email (if you are subscriber), or see a post on Facebook, with a suggested reading plan. Along with the reading are some brief comments about particular verses which spoke to my heart when I used this particular plan a few years ago (2013). I personally intend to use this reading schedule again this year.
I would love to have you add any particular thoughts the Lord spoke to you during your reading. Feel free to comment on as many of the posts as you would like or share anything else that is on your heart.
Finally, I will be praying for you that whether it is your first time in reading through the Bible in a year, or your 50th, that you will be richly blessed. I am certain you will!
In Christ alone,
