Thought For The Week 2nd July, Brent
July is Bible month, a time to celebrate scripture and renew our love for God’s Word.
Perhaps you follow a Bible reading plan, or use a daily devotional like “The Word for Today”, or “Our Daily Bread.” Perhaps you like to stay up to date with the lectionary readings printed on the service sheet, or perhaps you have a favourite verse, or favourite Psalm. There is not right or wrong way to read your Bible – the wonderful thing is that God speaks to us in new ways whenever we spend time in the word.
If you’d like to spend more time with the word this month, I’d encourage you to choose a gospel, and read it from beginning to end. You might choose Matthew if you like the whole story with the most detail. Choose Mark if you like urgency and drama. Choose Luke for closeness with Jesus. Choose John to connect with the wonder and mystery of God. Whatever you choose, I pray that God’s Holy Spirit will draw you in to the life of Jesus in a fresh way.
