This is My Bible: GET READING!!!

"After 10 years of research, LifeWay (the Southern Baptist resource and statistics arm) states two things about maturity: 1. Bible engagement is the #1 spiritual discipline for growth. 2. Bible engagement affects every other discipline. People who engage the Bible give more, go more & evangelize more... Read the Bible this year!" - Robby Gallaty

The above quote comes from one of my seminary friends who has become quite the scholar and pastor in his own ways. Robby's primary focus is upon discipleship and Christian growth. The last few blog posts have been on the topic of my Bible collection, and my reasoning for people to utilize paper Bibles instead of electronic apps. I am a firm believer, regardless of paper or electronic, you will not grow spiritually without consistency in the Bible. I was going to challenge my church members to read the entirety of the Bible with me this year, but I think the required reading would be too much for those who don't typically read their Bibles at all. Thus, We are embarking on reading the life of Jesus in Chronological order. The aim is to begin January 1, and complete the story of Jesus on Easter. If you'd like to join along with me, below is the layout we're following.
