There is no way I could cover all that the Psalms have to say about Creation in one post, but I wanted to share with you some of the verses I’ve run across in my Bible reading this past week.
I’ve been using Robert Murray M’Cheyne’s Bible Reading Plan this year and I’m really enjoying it. The first time I read through the Bible completely was when I was 16. There’s nothing that can replace studying God’s word for yourself. The Jesus I read about didn’t always act the Jesus we learned about in Sunday School!
The first few times I read through the Bible I just used a dollar store paperback that scrunched everything together with no gaps at the end of books. With a little calculation I figured out that 3 1/3 columns a day would get me through in a year. I do NOT like reading plans that have you read 3 chapters a day whether they’re Psalm 121-124 or Luke 1-3. It’s also tough for me to push through some of the OT sections like I Chronicles 1-6 and all the chapters on building the Tabernacle and Temple. That’s why I like having 4 different sections every day with M’Cheyne’s plan. People have been using this plan for over 150 years so there is a connection with our fellow Christians of old as well.
Well, that was introduction; on to what I read about this week!
