As we enter the new year, I would like to challenge you to make sure you are doing some spiritual exercises so that you grow in your faith:
- Read the Bible
- Spend time in Prayer and Worship
- Spend time with other followers of Jesus
- Share your faith and Serve others
If you’ve never read the entire Bible, I would recommend that you do it this year. I’m reading through the Bible on YouVersion.com this year. For the plan I’m using, click here. It’ll get you through the Bible in a year (if you follow it) and has some “grace space” built in so that if you miss a day, you can catch up.
That said, if you haven’t spent any time in the Bible today, consider meditating on the passage below. Ask God what he’s saying and how you can be a part of his plan.
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Lord, God, may you grant us the grace to see our own poverty – in resource, in belief, in grace, and in humility – so that we may exchange it for the treasure that is you.
Until next time…
