Read the Bible in 2012!
The most important thing you can do to grow your walk with God is to read the Bible. That's quite a statement, eh? Many Christ-followers say that reading the Bible has the greatest impact on their spiritual life, more than church, small groups, classes or serving, although those things are really important too! Studies show that if you read the Bible and at least 4 times a week, you're far more likely to grow your walk with God.
Here are some great Bible reading tools to check out this year:
Click on "Bible Studies and Devotions" and scroll down to "Bible Reading Guides". Here you'll find several methods for reading the Bible as well as amazing tools to help you get the most from your experience.
This site has many great resources including installing the Bible on your mobile device.
Go here to view several translations of the Bible, read commentary on the Bible or listen online.
Why not read the Bible with someone else at Creekside? Ask a friend to join you in this adventure. Our LifeGroups are a great place to connect with friends who want to read the Bible.
Oh, one last thing. The Bible translation that we use most often here at Creekside is the TNIV (Today's New International Version). Every Sunday morning there is a cart with bibles at the back of the gym. Feel free to grab one to use during the service.
May God richly bless your journey of reading the Bible in 2012!
