As 2017 comes to an end, I have been praying over ways I can grow closer to Jesus in 2018. This New Year will be a year for me that I will strive to spend more dedicated time in prayer and in the study of God’s Word.
I have created a two-fold system that I hope will work, and one that I hope I will stick to. First, I’m using my iPhone to schedule in times of prayer and Bible study with daily reminders. I’ve also purchased a daily/monthly/yearly planner that I have to physically writing in those times.
Now that I have a system I need a plan. This year I will be working with a few different plans to help myself, my family, and my marriage. Here is what my plan will consist of.
- Personal daily time studying God’s Word using the CSB Disciples Study Bible that has the F-260 Bible Reading Plan included in it
- Daily time studying the Gospel of John in weekly sermon preparation
- Three times a week using The New City Catechsim with my children
- One day a week in A Marriage Bible study with my wife
I hope you’ll join me in 2018 getting into God’s Word so God’s Word gets into us. I am praying this will be a great year of spiritual growth for myself and my family and I covet your prayers.
