“You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead” (Deuteronomy 11:18).
A dynamic faith cannot be accomplished apart from an intimate knowledge of and relationship with the word of God. Like any meaningful relationship it grows only by intentional effort. While the bible might seem daunting it can be read in about 72 hours at a casual pace. Reading just twelve minutes a day, you can complete the bible in a year. Many books of the bible can be read in less than 20 minutes; most under 40. Another challenge is to read through the New Testament every thirty days. This can be accomplished by reading seven chapters a day. By reading five Psalms a day, you can read through the entire psalter every 30 days. Additionally, consider a proverb a day to complete that book in a month. It’s never so much the plan, however, as it is the execution of the plan.
