Two and a half years ago, I flipped to Genesis 1:1 and began to read. On a personal level, I have never been a big fan of timetables (like reading the whole Bible in a year) because I've learned that when I attempt to do that, the reading becomes much more of an obligation to complete or a task to accomplish than a time to truly commune with God and grow to know Him more; so, as much as I love a good challenge, I find it more fruitful for my soul to just take my time and be present with God rather than rushing through His Word. Sometimes I will get through 12 chapters in a single day, but other times there will be a single chapter that I have to sit on for multiple days on end. In the end, however, I eventually get to Revelation 22:21, and in this case -- 902 days later -- today was that day. Reading the Bible truly is an amazing thing. You get to read the whole thing from cover to cover and you realize that every word you've read -- from the first word in Genesis to the last in Revelation -- is a breath from God, a divinely composed love letter written from the Creator of the universe to people who don't deserve Him. If we were speaking in modern relationship jargon, He is "way out of our league," but even that is an understatement. You see, God didn't have to reveal Himself. In fact, for most heroes of the faith we read about in the Old Testament, they didn't have a Bible to go off of; they had faith alone driving them into obedience. Yet God, by His grace, chose to reveal Himself to us through His Word, and that Word is so powerful that I am left in silence as I reach it's end; what a beautiful tool to give us assurance in our faith and to teach us His Way. In this book are the answer to all life's questions; more importantly, within its pages is the key to truly knowing God, of growing in not only knowledge of but also desire for Him, discerning the differences between knowledge and intimacy, belief and faith, feeling and experience, action and intention. Hope that this in some way encourages you to dust off the old Bible -- or if you don't own one, to go get your hands on one -- open it up, and truly #DiveDeep.
