Did you know, you can have a personal relationship with God? As humans, we are born sinners. No amount of good works will ever save us. Fortunately, salvation is a free gift from God. If we sincerely believe in God as our Savior, knowing He died for our sins and was raised from the dead as the penalty for our sins, we will be saved. Yes, it’s really that simple.
“Dear God, I am a sinner, I need a savior. Please forgive me of my sins. I believe you sent your son, Jesus, to die for my sins and I thank you. I believe Jesus rose from the dead and is in Heaven today. I accept you as my Lord and Savior and thank you for the gift of salvation. Amen.”
If you’ve accepted God’s invitation, the best way to nurture your new relationship with God is to read His word, the Bible.
Do you need to attend church? How do you choose a church? What about Hell? Is the end of the world really coming? All great questions, and yes, it’s all in the Bible.
Don’t be confused by what others say the Bible says, know it for fact. The best way to know the answers are to read them for yourself. Bits and pieces make more sense when they’re put into context. Yes, I’m suggesting you read the entire Bible, cover to cover. It’s not as overwhelming as you might think. If you read a small portion each day, you can read through the Bible in a year.
Now, the real challenge, continue to read through the Bible EVERY year! Your life will be changed and blessed for it… God guarantees it.
The book of Proverbs was written by King Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived. What better place for us to gain insight and wisdom?
There are 31 chapters in Proverbs. Find the chapter that matches today’s date (ie. 14th of the month = chapter 14) now, read any one verse from that chapter and put it into practice today.
There’s one chapter for each day of the month and enough verses to keep this going for over two years.
Finished? Excellent! Now begin again. God will find new ways to continue blessing your life as you spend time in His word and putting it into action.
