Closer to God in the New Year: 2

Get into God’s Word every day. If you’ve owned a Bible for years but have never read the entire book, this is a great time to start. There are several good resources available to help you read through the Bible in a year. Try it in a different translation than you usually read. Or, ask yourself where you want to be in your relationship with the Lord by the end of the year and then set tangible goals for getting there through study.

For instance, if you want to know God better, consider a study of his names in the Old Testament and Jesus’ “I am” statements in the New Testament. If you need to slow down and learn to listen for his voice, study all the Word says about “rest” or “hearing” or his “voice.” If there are character traits you know you need to work on, consider an in-depth study of some or all of the fruits of the spirit (Galatians 5:22-23).
