• Bible Reading Plan For August

    Sometimes the Bible seems like a great book which tells us a lot about God and what he has done but the direct application to our lives from the text we are reading is sometimes hard to come across. This wont be a problem for this month as we dive into the book of Proverbs. The book of Proverbs is a book of wisdom. It is a book that has nuggets of gold for direct application to our lives in every few verses. Read, it meditate on it and change your life in response to what God says to you through the book of Proverbs. As always  the instructions for using this reading plan are below. If you want a hard copy of this reading plan you can download it here Bible Reading Plan For August

    Read the Bible passage that is assigned for the day of month (e.g. read 1 on the 1st of August and 15 on the 15th of August) and meditate on what hits you from the passage about God’s love.

  • Bible Reading Plan For July

    The Book Of Revelation is a a very misunderstood and quite a daunting book. It is a book where so many crackpots have gone to justify insane theories about pretty much everything. The first verses of the book actually gives us the key to understanding the whole book. It says:

    The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he saw—that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ. Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it,because the time is near.

    Reveltaion 1:1-3

    Did you see what the book of Revelation is about? It is about Jesus. If you keep asking yourself “what does this reveal to me about who Jesus is and what he has done?” you will have a great time reading the book. If you ask who is the beast or whatever the book will confuse you. Anyway the Beast is obviously Justin Bieber. I haven’t got anything to back that assertion up other than the fact that I can’t stand him!

    As always the instructions are below. and make sure you tweet what you get out of it!

    Read the Bible passage that is assigned for the day of month (e.g. read 1 on the 1st of July and 15 on the 15th of July) and meditate on what hits you from the passage about God’s love. Thank him for what you have learnt from Revelation and then pray the prayer below that is based on 1 Thessalonians 3:12-13 for yourself and two other people at Resolved.
