Dear Friends in Christ,
Our Lutheran heritage celebrates Luther’s emphasis on “By Scripture Alone”. For too long the common person had had too little opportunity for individual exposure to the Word. Luther was dedicated to put the Word into the hands of the people and to instruct them in the truths of Scripture. Couple that with Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press and the availability of the Word began to be more common. Today the explosion of Scripture availability is proof of God’s intent to have all men to be saved and to bring the saving gospel into all the world.
Last year your Spiritual Growth Committee encouraged you to read The Daily Bible, a unique chronological arrangement of the Scriptures. For those of you that followed the readings we pray that you have been blessed by reading. If anyone might be interested in doing the reading this year read more online or contact the church office and get the short introduction booklets that provide focus on each day’s readings.
Today we have multiple ways in which we can be in the Word. Using your own Bible and doing some research you can find multiple reading plans. Online resources and a variety of Bible translations are readily available. Continue reading “2019 Bible Reading Plan”
