2 Peter 1~ Day 104~ Keep reading!

What an easy day of reading, only one chapter!

So, I have been praying lately, as we are approaching the end of this reading plan, "Lord, do I do it again?  Do I start over and read the New Testament straight through, again? Or, do I stop the blog and get into something else, like a semester long Bible study on one book of the Bible?"

I've been waiting for an answer from Him and I think Peter spelled it out for me in today's reading.
"For if you possess these qualities (goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, mutual affection and love), in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in you knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ." (1:8)

I want to be effective and productive in my knowledge of my Lord!

Then I read, "So I will always remind you of these things, even though you know them and are firmly established in the truth you now have." (1:12)

I felt like God was speaking directly to me!  "I want to keep reminding you of my words.  So keep reading.  Yes, you are firmly established in truth...but I have more for you to learn- and I want you to remind others as well!"

OK, God, I will keep going with the blog!  So....I will be starting again May 1st!

As for you, dear friends that are still reading with me, good job on getting through the 4 month reading plan!!  I hope you tell others about the reading and encourage them to join me next month!

  2. Amen for reading it again... For me it still seems new each time... Like the Lord focuses me into something that I didn't see last time....
