Reading in Chronological Order

     Well, there are only 3 more days of reading through the New Testament in chronological order and then we've finished it.  I've been trying to decide whether to start next on the Old Testament in chronological order, or re-read the New.  Today it seems re-reading the New is the best idea.  I know every word of the Bible is important, but I believe it is even more so that we know what Jesus said and then apply it to our lives.  I must read it over and over to really understand Him.  It also seemed significant that if I start over now, I will be reading the Nativity story again, as my daily reading, here in the Christmas season.
     This Bible reading plan has been profitable.  I especially enjoyed reading the different gospel accounts consecutively because new light was shed as each author described the situation.
     Since I have been posting the daily reading on my blog, I would appreciate hearing from any of you who would like me to continue.  It takes a little time and effort to get it posted, which I enjoy doing, but if I don't hear from anyone, I will assume I'm the only one using this particular plan right now, and discontinue posting it.  You can either add a comment here, or email me, if you want me to continue.
     No matter what plan you use, I urge you to continue reading God's Word.  The times are so uncertain that being grounded in what God says may save your life here on earth, and will definitely save it for eternity.
