It is with a sense of great accomplishment and gratefulness that I comment today. A year ago I started reading the One Year Bible blog without much hope of finishing, because of the times I'd failed before. Although I skipped out most of Ezekiel because I got really behind at one stage, I got through the rest. YAY!

Knowing that there was a community of readers doing this with me, and being able to interact with you all through comments was a key ingredient for me. Thank you to all who posted.

Mike, thank you so much. Your commitment to this blog is admirable, and your humility is inspiring. I think you must be one of Jesus' heros when I see how many lives you are touching daily through your obedience to Him.

Having read the whole Bible now, I have a much better idea of God as the beginning and the end, God working through history, God unravelling His love-plan and God reaching out to us. I have a much better understanding of Israel and the Jewish nation, and how they are a precious part of the fact that I am a Christian today. Praise You, Lord for drawing near to us. Praise You for The Message.

This has been a true inspiration and help along the way this year. Wife and I traveled about the country starting this past January and drove 13,000 miles from Florida to Texas, California, Washington, Chicago, Niagra Falls, Maine and down the East coast to Florida in 10 months. One year Bible saw me through. When I'd miss a few days, I'd get up some mornings as early as before 5:00 and catch up on my readings. This is my 4th or 5th time with OYB and the blog. Starts my day off right and some of Mike's insights and just reading will bring me to praying for whatever was stimulated. I treasure my time in the Word and prayer. Thanks Mike, it's been a true blessing.

I am so glad to say I would awake every mornings ng to read Gods word. My husband is on dialysis and has lots od drs appts. I will admit I haven't read all the Bible in this blog. Some days only what the guy that explained it so wonderful. Enjoyed his picture and could tell he studied a lot... I am going to read again this yr. I hope to understand and have a closer walk w God.. Thank you very much for ur time to put this bible blog on.. Can't think of ur name as I'm writing. I pray for u and wish everyone would join , a blessing!!

THanks Mike, thought of your name. You have to be praised for doing Christ work. God truly bless u

Mike and everyone,
Mike, thank you very much for your hard work, dedication and faithfulness in writing this blog!
Coming to this blog every day gives me the much needed accountability and encouragement to read and study God's Word.
Doing so has blessed me a lot!
My perspectives change as I encounter different challenges, troubles, worries, even successes and good things in life.
And thankfully, what I learn from God's Word, God has opened doors for me to share with my family and people in my church.
It indeed is a blessed journey to be in God's Word daily.
I look forward to following along this blog with Mike and all of you in the coming year!
This verse stands out to me today:
Revelation 22:11(NASB)
11 Let the one who does wrong, still do wrong; and the one who is filthy, still be filthy; and let the one who is righteous, still practice righteousness; and the one who is holy, still keep himself holy.”
learned the following from biblestudytools.com -
"God is saying that men choose to sin because they want to, not because they know no better; and the inference is that even this book, which reveals the ultimate, stark, destiny of sin, will not deter sinners from pursuing their fancy."
The commentary gives these cross-references:
Ezekiel 3:27(NASB)
27 But when I speak to you, I will open your mouth and you will say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God.’ He who hears, let him hear; and he who refuses, let him refuse; for they are a rebellious house.
"Ezekiel's responsibility was to accurately preserve and convey the message of God. Those who would respond did so. Those who would not did not. He did not own the results!"
also in 1 Corinthians 1:18 (NASB)
18 For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
and in 2 Corinthians 2:15-16(NASB)
15 For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing; 16 to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life. And who is adequate for these things?

May God bless Mike and everyone to experience more of His faithfulness, His love, His grace and His truth in the coming year!

Thank you God and Mike for another year in the Word. This was year number ten of this commitment to being in the Word daily. A person would think that after reading through the Bible a few times there would be nothing new to glean from it; Wrong: Every day is a new adventure and the Spirit leads us through a new journey with every page turned. I learn to love the Word more each day. My day is established each morning in the Word and when I miss it (the evil one tries each day to distract me) my day falls apart. Please continue going through this everyday until it is an established part of your life. The blessings are unfathomable when your spirit is filled from His Word.
