What’s your favorite book of the Bible? You have 66 to choose from and I’d understand if your said Romans, Psalms, Genesis, one of the Gospels, or Galatians. I’d be worried if you picked Numbers. That’d be weird.
For me it’s easy…Philippians. We did a 12 week study of Philippians a while back in a Bible study and it lit a fire under me. It convicted me and challenged my faith, taking it to a whole new level. (After all, level two is higher than level one). It was just verse after verse of Paul encouraging the Christians in Philippi and modeling what it means to treasure Christ above all else…even his own life. I think it especially hit home living in America, the land of plenty, with so many things clamoring for my attention, all fighting for a spot on the throne of my heart.
It’s been a while so I thought it’d be cool to read through it again, blogging what God brings to mind as I go. I’ll sprinkle in posts about other subjects, but I’ve never seen anyone blog through a book of the Bible before. This should be fun! (Side note: after I had written this I stumbled across three of four blogs whose authors were blogging their way through the entire Bible. I’m such an amateur!)
This post will serve as a table of contents for the whole series so you’ll be able to link to each post from here, as well as see what upcoming posts will cover (as much as I know them in advance). I hope you enjoy it! Remember to subscribe via email or RSS over on the right sidebar if you want to be notified when a new entry is posted.
