In Daniel's sermon this week, he asked us all a question: "How will you listen to God this year?"
That question reminded me of a quote from The Trellis and The Vine by Colin Marshall and Tony Payne.
Imagine if all Christians, as a normal part of their discipleship, were caught up in a web of regular Bible reading -- not only digging into the Word privately, but reading it with their children before bed, with their spouse over breakfast, with a non-Christian colleague at work once a week over lunch, with a new Christian for follow-up once a fortnight for mutual encouragement, and with a mature Christian once a month for mutual encouragement.
It would be a chaotic web of personal relationships, prayer and Bible reading -- more of a movement than a program -- but at another level it would be profoundly simple and within reach of all. It's an exciting thought!
