We had a rich and rewarding walk through the Bible over the last two weeks. To top it off, we read the book of Hebrews in our Sunday service. Written to a Jewish ‘audience,’ Hebrews really helps make sense of how to understand the Old Testament. It is a shadow or copy of The Fulfillment: Jesus Christ, whose once-for-all sacrifice is superior and all-sufficient.

The theme that resonated so loudly to me in this year’s reading was that God’s promises are conditional on our obedience. Don’t get me wrong: His love is never conditional, His faithfulness is not dependent on any other factors, and His Word never changes.

But when it comes to God’s promised blessings, the outcome is primarily up to us. I have no problem with claiming promises, but let’s take up our responsibility to obey His commands right along with it.

“We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands” (I Jn 2:3).

Thank you for helping to support DOVE Missions Africa in the Read-a-Thon this year. We reached almost 70% of our $1,000 target; the door for giving is still wide open!

    Thank you team @read a thon. It was great reading through the Bible with you. There some verses I used to hear now when it was placed chronologically; they made meaning.
    Thank you for the team that compiled that chronological list.
    Am compiling my list at this time.
    God bless you @theomondis for this great initiative.
    Blessings be in abundance.

  2. Maybe you can help us with some ideas of how to improve it next year, and hopefully get more people involved. Blessings!
