10-10-10-10-10 Rule for Bible Reading

Here is the YouVersion Bible Reading plans There are many and I mean many plans to chose from here.  Don’t wait, start now.  It doesn’t matter if you only have 1 minute or 2 hours.  Start with something.  I try daily to follow at minimum a 10-10-10-10-10 Rule: Read the bible For 10 minutes, Read a book for 10 minutes, Pray for 10 minutes, and Memorize Scripture for 10 minutes Write for 10 minutes Preach the Gospel for 10 minutes to yourself (of course evangelism would grow out of this discipline). Of course each of these can be changed

Bible Reading Plans for 2016

I know that at any given time and at at ever moment everybody is seeking something.  For me I want that something to be God.  Because God’s Word (the Bible) tells us that Jesus Christ is God, the Son and reveals God, the Father as the exact image of him (Colossians 1), I desire ever year to read what God has revealed about himself in the only book that reveals what is totally true and trustworthy about who God is and what he has and is doing in this world –  And That Book is that Bible – a book

Why Read the Bible?

Here is great motivation to read the Bible with the right goal in mind: “…to think God’s thoughts after him, to love what he loves, to cherish what he cherishes, to hate what he hates.  It is to shae the whole mind and heart.” — D.A. Carson

5 Reasons to Read the Entire Bible in 2016

by Jeff Robinson I vividly recall two conversations with pastors shortly after I surrendered to pastoral ministry in the late-1990s. The conversations were pivotal because in them I was exposed to two divergent approaches to ministry, and the Lord used them to convince me that I must saturate my mind with Scripture. In one conversation I asked a longtime pastor how many times he’d read the Bible in its entirety from Genesis to Revelation. “Never, but I hope to someday,” he replied. I was stunned. I thought, “Then how do you know what you believe?” Soon after I encountered another longtime shepherd of

Merry Christmas from the Glenn, Ann, Jonathan, & Andrew Leatherman

Merry Christmas from the Glenn, Ann, Jonathan, & Andrew Leatherman “All the Christmas presents in the world are worth nothing without the presence of Christ.” “If we could condense all the truths of Christmas into only three words, these would be the words: ‘God with us.’ We tend to focus our attention at Christmas on the infancy of Christ. The greater truth of the holiday is His deity. More astonishing than a baby in the manger is the truth that this promised baby is the omnipotent Creator of the heavens and the earth!”

Christmas Convictions

As Christmas Day fast approaches, it always helps me to slow down this time of year and think though what my beliefs and convictions are about my faith in Christ, Christianity, and Christmas.  As I have reflected on my faith this year (2015), two convicting implications stood out to me. First, the Christmas story shows the depraved state of humanity. Why would God send His son to earth?  So we can celebrate his birthday every December 25th with our holiday traditions and presents? As holly and jolly as this season is, the Christmas story communicates the grim reality that mankind is
