Looking Ahead...

As we look ahead to the upcoming new year, Lord willing, I thought it would be helpful to offer some ideas that could help us grow in our faith. Below are a few things that come to mind:

  1. Read the Bible Through - Choose a Bible reading plan to help guide you through a thoughtful & careful reading of Scripture. A good resource is the ESV website which offers several good plans & devotional resources that you can read on the website or receive as a RSS feed. You are also given the option of listening to a recording of the text of the day being read by Max McLean.
  2. Take Inventory of Your Life - Don Whitney provides a helpful list of questions to ask ourselves at the beginning of the year. Prayerfully consider them and seek God’s guidance in making any necessary adjustments or in beginning something new.
  3. Read Books - Here are a few links to help in creating a reading list:

    20 Books to Read on Christianity and Culture by Tullian Tchividjian

    A Small List of Good Books also by Tullian Tchividjian

    Book Buyers Guide by Tim Challies

    Discerning Reader website

This list is by no means exhaustive but I pray it provides a helpful starting point. Please feel free to share any thoughts or ideas that have helped you in the past.
