Yes, I’m behind on my Bible Reading!
No, I’m not THAT far behind that I have only just finished Leviticus.
Actually, I am about to start Joshua. I made it all the way through the Pentateuch! This is the first time that I have ever started reading the whole Bible through in a set time period and actually made it beyond Genesis!!! So I have something to be glad about!
On the other hand, I should be somewhere in 2 Samuel by now probably! So I am WAAAAAAY behind. Medical school started and my Bible Readings kinda slipped on a banana peel and outa my life.
But it’s not going to stay that way!
I am going to do my utmost to catch up. (After all, there are always the April holidays…) And even if I don’t catch up, that’s also okay. The point is to read through God’s Word. You know, the one that’s sharper than a double edged sword? The one that’s inspired by God? The only Word that is living and active? Yup, that’s the one! The only one!
And I (and all the rest of God’s people) cannot survive without it.

This seeming “Handbook of Rules” for the Israelite people is often dismissed as boring, irrelevant or out-of-date! However, God’s concern and passion for holiness shines through every line in this book!
“For I am the LORD who brings you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God. You shall therefore be holy for I am holy.” Lev 11 : 45
In the small things, as in the big things, God wants His people to be holy, as He is holy.
We serve a holy God.
