Sharper than any double-edge sword

One of the things that I am most looking forward to this year is that I'll be back on a one-year Bible reading plan. However, this time, it will be something that is church-initiated rather than self-initiated, which is really exciting! It'll be so neat to go through this experience of the Word of God together with other people in the church. In the past, I've done this twice on my own - I didn't do very well the first time but the second time was a bit better. Now I'm hoping that group accountability will keep me from missing a day or two here and there.

Something else I'm glad about is that this particular plan has both the Old and the New Testament in the daily readings, which I prefer to those that move from one testament to the other. This is mostly because I've just spent a year studying the Old Testament and so I'm glad I don't have to wait until September to get back into the New Testament again. I noticed that at Bible Gateway, they have several plans for 2009 and that you can choose from Old/New Testament, Chronological, Beginning (from cover to cover in the Bible) or Historical plans, so that's a handy resource. I've always wanted to read the Bible chronologically so that may be a plan I'll use in the future.

"Every word of God is flawless; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him." - Proverbs 30:5

(You've probably noticed that I've been quoting from Proverbs lately. I finished the OT historical books in November and so I decided to read through Proverbs in December before I joined the church on this one-year plan :) Post title refers to Hebrews 4:12).
