Bible’s Top 40

August 11, 2015–

Friends, as Christ followers, we are called to live lives that are rooted in the Word, yet even many longtime churchgoers do not spend time daily reading their Bibles and do not know what is in it. Once we each reach a point as disciples in which we do want to learn more about what is in this ancient book, there is the nagging question of “Just where do I start?” Ninety-day Bible studies and plans to read straight through, beginning with Genesis, can be challenging and often lead to disappointment and giving up – about the time the reader reaches Leviticus! However, Glenn McDonald, in his book, “The Disciple Making Church: From Dry Bones to Spiritual Vitality,” has a workable plan for those of you making your first attempts to learn more about the treasures the Bible holds. He has compiled a list of 40 well known texts. If you are just beginning to get acquainted with Scripture, visiting these “highlights” is a great way to start. Click here to download the list. I encourage you to take this list, find a quiet time and place for a few minutes each day and begin a journey into the Bible that you will never regret taking.  To be transformed by the Word, and to be a community that lives by the Word, we must be immersed in it. “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8: 31-32)         

Many thanks,

Pastor Matt
