September Discipline: Reading/Study

Posted by Dave Clayton on

As we near the end of the month of September, we will be wrapping up our blog discussions on the discipline of study.

I don't know about all of you, but the 30 Days of Red Letters has made such an impact on how much time I've spent in the Word these past 27 days. To have a certain verse that I can concentrate on or look back on throughout the day has been so helpful in bringing me back to what is most important in each day. There have been so many times when I have felt rushed, stressed, and tired--but looking at the red letters for that day put everything in perspective and brought me back to why we are given a chance to start over each day.

As we venture out of the discipline of study and move into the discipline of prayer during October, I encourage you to find a way to hold onto a certain verse each day of the month of October, and make scripture something that you can hold onto each day of the year, instead of just diving into the word on Sunday and Wednesday nights.

One of my favorite verses was the red letter verse of the day for September 22nd, "The work of God is this: to believe in the one He has sent," John 6:29.

If we are going to believe in the one that He has sent, I want to be able to know and take cover in the words that He spoke while walking on this earth, and I think one of the best ways to really know the word of God and His Son is to be in it each and every day of the year.
