Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Still time to resolve to read the Bible this year

If you have never read through the Bible, if it has been a while since you have read it, or if you are re-reading any book this year, there is still time to resolve to read the best-selling book of all time-- the book that has so fundamentally shaped all English literature and Western thought in general-- this year. If you simply read 4 chapters a day (and a couple extra on the Lord's Day) for the next 3 weeks, then you will be on track to cut back to 3 chapters a day, and 5 on the Lord's Day, and complete the Bible in a year. (Most chapters in the Bible are shorter than typical chapters in modern books.)

I type this encouragement especially to those who may have thought about reading the Bible through this year, and either failed to begin or have fallen behind.
