This year, I have one New Year's Resolution...well, one that I came up with. (Joel had a suggestion for me, too...) But the one I chose was to read through the Bible in a year. I did this 3 years ago and it was such a good thing! I learned so much reading it all and seeing the "Big Picture" of God's love for His people. It was fun, too, to see all the Old Testament prophecy leading up to the coming of Jesus--it gives it a whole new meaning when you see it from that perspective instead of ours. (On that note, Andrew Peterson has an AWESOME Christmas CD out that shares this OT perspective, too--it's called "Behold the Lamb of God") Anyway--this year, I'm reading through the Bible chronologically. If any of you don't already have a feasible NY's resolution, join me! I've posted the link so you can find out what to read each day. It's actually pretty doable! Oh, and I'm reading in the Message paraphrase, which makes it more story-like.
