“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”
We have just come out of the holiday season and one of the top New Year’s resolutions is a diet. I totally understand after eating multiple delicious meals and goodies myself that were prepare with love for us to enjoy. In fact, I am planning on changing my eating habits this year. While I will commend you for seeking to eat less and healthier foods, I want to challenge you to eat more . . . but of a different type of food. This is food for your soul.
My desire for 2013 is that BridgePointe becomes Bible eaters. I have found just the right meal plan for us. It was created by Trent Hunter and you can read more about it here. It is called The Bible Eater and here’s how the Bible Eater works:
- Old Testament: Read 2 to 3 chapters per day and take 4 days off per month. Read 1 to 3 designated one-sitting Old Testament books each quarter.
- New Testament: Read 1 chapter per day and take 4 days off per month. One gospel is assigned to each quarter and Romans and Hebrews are assigned twice across the year.
We’re going to modify the meal plan a little to coordinate with our new sermon series. So we’ll start reading the gospel of John this first quarter rather than Matthew.
So join us in casting off the life-long diet and begin feasting on God’s Word.
