Faith that Overcomes

A New Year’s Challenge

Are you putting the Word first? I recently undertook a “challenge” that you might also want to consider. I believe it was Oral Roberts who, decades ago, suggested that if we would read the Gospels and Acts three times in 30 days, we would get a greater revelation of Jesus. I have started that process and I have to tell you that the Holy Spirit is certainly making clear to me something I didn’t even expect: a greater revelation of who I am in Christ.

You may think you don’t have time to do that much Bible reading in that amount of time. Maybe you have kids to care for, a job to tend to, etc. But why not try putting the Word first? The Bible says to seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness, and everything else you need will be taken care of (Matthew 6:33). Why not take God at His word and put the Word first for 30 days? It will make a major difference in your life, and you’ll want to continue down this path.

If you won’t take my word for it, read this little inspirational article from Gloria Copeland, who tried this 20 years ago with great success. Oh, and be sure to check back with me and share with all of us your new revelations of Christ.
