My suggestion for the New Year

Happy New Year to everyone!

Resolve to read the New Testament every day.

It will make a great impact on your life.

If you can find time for reading other books or watching TV or the like, you surely can find time for reading God’s Word!

Not to do so is to starve yourself spiritually–not a good idea in the light of eternity, and certainly a great loss of God’s encouragement, guidance, and blessing in the “here and now.”

Don’t kid yourself–if you want the best for your life, let God speak daily to you through His written Word!

Related Bible Verses:

Matthew 12:3.  Jesus asked the question, “Have ye not read?”  That shows Jesus expects us to read and understand the Bible.

Matthew 24:15.  Jesus asserts, when He states, “Let him that readeth understand,” that even difficult portions of the Bible like the prophecies of Daniel which He was just then talking about, are written to be understood, and that with careful reading and study, we can understand them.

John 5:39.  Jesus literally commands, “Search the Scriptures.” Learn more about how to do that by reading what I have posted on this site. Make use of the cross references in the center or side column of your Bible, if you are fortunate enough to have a reference Bible. Use the search feature at the very top right-hand corner of this page to enter a Bible reference or topic to see if I have included it here. I have shared the cross references for over 300 different Bible verses in more complete form here than you will likely find anywhere else.

1 Peter 2:2. Peter gives the commandment, “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.” I believe that anyone who is not feeding themselves spiritually by both reading and studying the Bible as regularly as he or she feeds themselves physically is in danger of dying spiritually.
