Bishop Lewis has encouraged the clergy and laity of the Virginia Conference to read through the Bible each year since 2017. Make a New Year’s resolution for 2021 to read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation in one year. You can access the daily readings at www.vaumc.org.
Tips on reading the Bible daily:
Set aside a specific time and place each day. Set your schedule and then stick to it.
Get a good study Bible to help to illuminate the meaning of the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek text.
Say a short prayer to God before you begin, asking the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom and understanding.
Dive in and enjoy the richness of God’s Word! Apply God’s Word to your life. Bible study should be practical and applicable.
