A Year to Learn

01 Jan

The past two years, I have read through the Bible in a year. It works very nicely.  It reminds me to do it every day and I like schedules.  I decided that this year, I don’t want to do it again.  Some days, I don’t think I get as much out of it as I could, since I rush to get through the required amount for that day.  I noticed this especially in the OT prophets.  The chapters were long and some days I would have to read 3-4 of them.

I decided instead that I was going to do an intensive study on one book.  Then I had the difficult task of decided which book. I finally narrowed it down to either John or Hebrews and eventually decided to go with Hebrews. After all, I could always do John next year 🙂

I sent out a message to every pastor I know asking for book recommendations and the response was great! The pastors at my new church eagerly opened their libraries to me and told me to take whatever I wanted.

I am sooo excited!  I want to devote all of 2014 to Hebrews and read everything I can get my hands on!  I want to listen to every sermon I can find on the book.  All in all, it’s an overwhelming task, but I’m taking it one step at a time.

So here’s my prayer for the new year.  I want to keep this excitement.  I don’t want to get bogged down and lose my focus and determination.  I want to learn more about salvation and propitiation.

I want this study to teach me more about my Savior.
