2018 Read Thru the Bible

bishopbibleBible study is very essential to building our faith. Through God's Word, we gain an understanding that God is the one who gives the gift of knowledge for us to live productive lives as believers. I would like to invite you again this year to read the Bible chronologically (in the order of events). The readings are posted on the conference website and in the monthly Advocate. If you were not successful in completing the challenge let me encourage you to try again this year.  Click HERE for the DAILY READINGS.  
Tips on reading the Bible daily:
1. Start reading the Bible today. 
2. Set aside a specific time and place each day. Set your schedule and then stick to it. Mornings are great; but feel free to use any time that works consistently with your schedule.  
3. Get a good study Bible to help to illuminate the meaning of the original Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek text.
4. Choose a translation to use during your reading.
5. Say a short prayer to God before you begin, asking the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom and understanding.
6. Dive in and enjoy the richness of God's Word!
7. Apply God's Word to your life.
 Bible study should be practical and applicable. I assure you that these seven steps will help you begin a journey in becoming a "life-long learner" of God's Word.
Peace and Blessings,
Bishop Lewis
