The New Testament In A Week
I have just finished reading a chapter from the book, "The Legacy Of Sovereign Joy", by John Piper. It was on the life of Martin Luther. It was convicting because he says that he "read the Bible cover to cover twice per year". This continued for a period of ten years according to his friend, Melancthon. I am in serious need of reading the Bible in this way. My Scripture intake is minimal at best. Therefore, I hereby resolve that I will read the entire New Testament this week and will do all in my weak power to understand it, by the help of the Holy Spirit.
