I would like to invite you to join me on a journey. This year I am going to look at the Bible in a new way. Rather than seeing the Bible as a book or a collection of letters, I am going to choose single verses or short passages and look at them as if they are memos from God. What can I learn from these passages that will make my life better or make me a better person? The Bible says in II Timothy 3:16,17 that all scripture comes directly from God. If we believe that God is perfect and all-powerful, then it is easy to believe that His Word is true. But even if we don’t, there are still valuable principles that can be learned from it. Those verses go on to say that from scripture we can learn what we should believe, what we should not believe, what we should not do and what we should do. We are told that a person dedicated to God will be equipped for every good work. If we get the right teaching and apply it to our lives, it will lead to doing the right things. That sounds like a good goal to me, and I think it’s worth a try. I would love to have you join me. If there are topics or verses that you want to know more about, feel free to make suggestions. I make no guarantee that I will be able to provide you with the answers you need, but I promise to consider your suggestions and welcome your feedback. Perhaps we can help each other to make 2011 the best year ever. Happy New Year!
