BIBLE READING PLANNER
STEP 5 INTRODUCTION
This Fifth step forward takes you through sixteen weeks to complete a half-year of reading God's Word. Already in your reading of the Bible you will have seen marvellous and comforting records of God's work and love.
These notes can be only be brief in order the reduce the size of the pages but by now you will probably be picking out vital points from the chapters for yourself. If you would like to study any particular subject in more detail please contact us.
There are sometimes difficult or obscure matters in the readings. God has wisely designed the Bible so that we shall always have plenty of interesting and exciting things to discover all through our lives. We shall never finish finding out ALL there is to know from God's Word.
The key to growing in Christ is to learn, understand and then most importantly, put the word of God into practice in our lives. Studying the word of God is very rewarding. The message of the Bible can be viewed as a bit like a diamond. When looking at one facet all the other facets are seen reflected in it. It is indeed a wonderful book, God's word is boundless!!
We can, however, (and we must) come very soon to learn the essential teachings and message. If we come across problems it is always best to let Scripture interpret Scripture. The answers to our questions are often in the same chapter as our problem, if not the answers will be found elsewhere in the Bible, we just have to look for them.
So look back at what you have already read, make use of marginal references or of a ‘concordance’ if you have one (that is a list in alphabetical order, of words in the Bible and the verses where they occur).
Always remember to take your time reading the Bible and do it consistently, carefully and prayerfully.
