I Don’t Read My Bible Enough

Feeling like we miss the mark when it comes to Bible reading is a common struggle.

There are many reasons for this:

  • I’m too busy.
  • It’s boring.
  • There is so much strange stuff in there.
  • I don’t understand it.

As I have grown in my understanding of the Bible, my favorite part is seeing the big picture messages and how things fit together from cover to cover.

Especially when you come to books like Leviticus or Judges, it is easy to write them off and wonder what their point is.

I want to recommend a great resource to those of you who can relate to any of the preceding feelings.

The Bible Project is a great tool to understand what the Bible is all about. You can get the big picture of books or an overview of the major themes throughout Scripture.

I recently had a friend and mentor tell me he watched one video a day until he got through the entire Bible. This man will forget more than I will ever know about Scripture. Yet, he knows staying in the Word keeps him fresh and hungry for more.

So I challenge you.

Use the Bible Project to get an overview of the entirety of Scripture.

  • Watching one video a day will take a little over 2 months
  • Watching on weekdays only will take a season of the year
  • One book a week will take 15 months.

Speed is not the issue.

There is something remarkably powerful in understanding the entirety of God’s written communication to man. When we see the threads of redemption, grace, and the character of God running from cover to cover…..it does something to us…

It makes you throw up your hands in awe of the God we serve.

Multiple human authors on several continents recording a message spanning thousands of years with the same message!

Take that miracle off the shelf through the medium of well done videos.

You might not read the Bible enough, but the good folks at The Bible Project have helped us access this truth in new and rich ways.

Curious? Take a look at the least understood book of the Bible,  Leviticus.

I would be stunned if you do not walk away from an eight minute investment with a deeper understanding of this amazing book.
