A Challenge for Every Member
As WELS Lutherans we all believe that every word of Scripture is the very Word of God. We believe that that word is the truth, and the power not only for our salvation, but for living lives that are pleasing to our great God.
Because that is what we profess to believe, it should lead us to faithfully read and meditate on that Word, as the Psalmist describes the godly man “his delight is in the teaching of the LORD, and on His teaching he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted beside streams of water, which yields its fruit in season, and its leaves do not wither.” (Psalm1 v.2,3a)
However, the Bible is a big book, it can intimidate us…
in places it is hard or repetitious, and can discourage us…
our lives are busy, and we have a hard time disciplining ourselves to be faithful in reading.
So… I am presenting every member with a challenge.
Will you join me in reading through the entire Bible during the next two years? I will provide a weekly reading guide with comments, explanations, meditation thoughts on each day’s reading. At times I may choose from our readings for a sermon text. The plan is to begin with the beginning of a new church year (November 26).
Print outs of the reading guide will be available at church each week, and also on this site.
