Just doing the role call late.
I started this back in October when we were reading Jeremiah. I am hoping to finish it out this year.
My favorite verse is Romans 12:12
Something interesting about me is that I am pregnant and am due any day now. So needless to say, if I miss a day or two on this, I won't be too hard on myself. My goal with this is to read the most I can and learn. I've never read the bible all the way thru.

Greetings!
My grandmother who passed away in 2006, in her obituary, it was mentioned that her personal success was being able to read through Bible 14 times prior to her death.

I'm now soon 21 years old, I anticipate to follow in her footsteps, to start reading Bible cover to cover.

1. Have you read the entire Bible before? Not yet.

2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2008? To be able to quote Bible verses without paraphrasing and to be able to defend my faith.

3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? Phil 4:6-7- Worry less, petition more to Christ Jesus that transcends everything.

4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself? I am a farmer's daughter in South Dakota that is third year student at private school.

1. I have read the Bible in academic study, however not like this. I started mid way through last year, but fell away as life took over. I am determined to get through it this year.

2. Getting revelation I don't have now. Last year i was able to use what i had read to minister to others so have experienced, first hand, how the Spirit hides the Word in my heart so it can be used later.

3. 1 Pet 3:1-4 - My marriage was renewed as I realized, through this passage, the true meaning of working out "my own salvation with fear and trembling. (Phil 2:12)"

4. I minister to children on Wednesday nights and learn something new from them every week that strengthens my faith in the Lord.

5. I have a MySpace, but I am transferring over the month or so to Shoutlife: http://www.shoutlife.com/LindaWhitesell

This is a great blog. It's my prayer that it helps me to stay on track through the year. I'm going to do like one other person who posted above and set it as my home page.

1. No. Have tried last year, but did not complete it.
2. To fulfill my yearly commitment that i always fail doing. Pray for me.
3.Mat 6:33
4.Like art and Craft, to exited on making projects and never complete it. Mother of 2, like beety boop cartoon, like fruit called "sawo"(available only in my country) and japanese food and ice cream.

NEW TESTAMENT ( Book of Matthew )

The late Dr. John R. Rice wrote a set of Bible commentaries to which he gave titles according to what he saw as the main theme of those books. His commentary on the Book of Matthew was entitled " King of The Jews." This of course points to Jesus Christ being of the royal lineage of the House of David and the heir to the throne of Israel. Jesus is called the " son of David " ten times in the gospel of Matthew.

The geneology in Matthew is different from the geneology in Luke because it is actually the geneology of Joseph, the husband of Mary who was the mother of Jesus ( Matthew 1:16 ). The geneology in Luke is Mary's family tree. Both Mary and Joseph were of the House of David. Jesus' family tree included many sinners, including the harlot Rahab ( Joshua 2:1,3 and 6:17, 23, 25 ), the adulteress Bathsheba ( 2 Samuel 11:3 ) and also some of the most wicked kings in the history of Judah. However, these are the very kinds of people that Jesus came to save. To the self-righteous Jewish religious leaders of His time Christ had declared, " Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him " - Matthew 21:31-32 ( kjv ). Matthew himself being a publican or a tax collector and despised by the Jews must have been relieved and overjoyed to hear that good news.

I must disagree with those who say that the magi or wise men were astrologers. I cannot see God honoring a practice which He has clearly condemned in His Law. I believe that they were Persians who were quite familiar with the messianic prophecies of the Hebrew Scriptures and also the history of the Jews during their 70 year period of exile from the land while in Babylon and Persia. The Persian kings chronicled everything ( Esther 2:23; 6:1 and 10:2 ). Surely the magi, if that is a proper term for them, must have known, for example, of the prophet Daniel who was exalted by King Nebuchadnezzar above all the wise men of Babylon ( Daniel 2:48 ) because he was able to interpret the king's dream when the astrologers in the kingdom could not ( Daniel 4:6 ). There is nothing in the gospels that suggest that anyone other than the wise men saw this star in the east. Even King Herod did not acknowledge seeing it and had to ask the wise men what time the star had appeared ( Matthew 1:7 ). It is not mentioned that the shepherds watching their flocks in the field by night saw the star either. A different sign was given to them ( Luke 2:12 ). I believe that star in the east was a sign in heaven given exclusively to the wise men by God.

Wise Men STILL Seek Him

I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas :)

PSALM 1:1-6

After I first got saved I attended a weekly Bible study where we sang accapella from the Book of Psalms without musical instruments in accompaniament. One person in the group led the singing and the rest followed his lead. I was amazed at how well it went considering that there was no set musical arrangement. I have never prayed the pslams but I believe that my prayers have been somewhat influenced by them after reading them for so many years. Reading Pslams does help get my mind in a spirit of worship.

QUESTIONS: Today we read this reflection on the godly in Psalm 1 verse 2: "But they delight in doing everything the LORD wants; day and night they think about his law." How well does this verse ring true with your life today? Do you delight in being obedient to God? Do you think about God's Word, the Bible, day and night? Should you? In 2008, will you?

I can honestly say that I do meditate on it day and night though and also that I do delight in the Word of God inwardly. Unfortunately I'm sure that isn't always manifested outwardly. Too often the old carnal sin nature rears it's ugly head but I am praying that I will do better in 2008. I can definitely relate to what the Apostle Paul said:

" For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members."

- Romans 7:22-23 ( kjv )

PROVERBS 1:1-6

What makes the Book of Proverbs so great to me and so valuable is the practical advice and spiritual counsel that it gives regarding human relations, money matters and almost everything else that pertains to everyday living. It has been my habit for several years to read one chapter of Proverbs each day. Since most of the time there are 31 days in a month and 31 chapters it works out perfectly that way. In months when there are only 30 days I read two chapters on the 30th of that month.

QUESTIONS: Do you want wisdom? Do you want discipline in your life? Do you want to do what is right, just and fair? Do you want purpose for your life? Do you believe this journey through the Bible in 2008 will move you forward in these areas? Will you cling to the wisdom of the Proverbs this year?

Of course I do want all of those things. I know that reading the Book of Proverbs, as well as the whole counsel of God's Word, has made a difference in how I look at things as opposed to the worldly perspective which foolishly excludes the wisdom of God. I will certainly continue in God's Word in 2008. By clinging to the Lord Jesus Himself I am clinging to Him in whom the Scripture says "... are hid all of the treasures of wisdom and knowledge " ( Colossians 2:2-3 ).

COMMENTS FROM YOU AND QUESTION OF THE DAY: "...So here's the roll-call questions: 1. Have you read the entire Bible before? 2. What are you looking forward to about reading the entire Bible in 2008? 3. What's your favorite book or verse in the Bible? 4. What's a fun or interesting fact about yourself? 5. Do you have a blog or website link that you want to share with everyone?..."

Roll-call answers:

1. Yes, several times.

2. New insights and a deeper understanding. Every time I have gone through the Bible I have not been disappointed.

3. It is hard to say that any one book is my favorite. The toughest to read are the sections with the long geneologies and measurements but I have found that even those should not be overlooked or ignored. The Book of Revelation never ceases to fascinate me and my interest in Bible prophecy is what led me to salvation by faith in Jesus Christ.

4. That is a hard question to answer. I really don't know. Sorry...lol :)

5. For news that should be of interest to Christians I would highly recommend:
