BIBLE READING PLANNER

STEP 2 INTRODUCTION 

Week 2
Week 3
 
 
 
 

Step Two covers two weeks - one in the Old Testament and the second in the New Testament.  Week two looks at the events following the Creation, in the early chapters of Genesis.  Week three looks at the new beginning when Jesus began his ministry proclaiming the gospel message. It is important to realise that the Bible is wholly the word of God and what we find in the New testament has it's foundation in the Old testament.

GOD'S PLAN

In creating the earth and the first man and woman, God had an ultimate purpose in mind.

This purpose is that the earth will be filled with men and women who have chosen to serve God and give Him glory. (Numbers 14:21). Men and women who desire to develop attributes and characteristics that reflect God's glorious character (Exodus 34:5-8) just as Jesus does.

These people who believe God's word and have faith will be given everlasting life in the kingdom of God on earth (Isaiah 45:18,23. Matthew 5:5. Daniel 7:27).

An essential stage in this plan was the miraculous birth of God's Son - Jesus Christ. His perfect obedience to God's will was vital to the plan.

The Bible is vital as a means of telling us what we have to do.
