Consider: I’m going to ask you to make a commitment to read through a complete book of the New Testament over the next three weeks. The book I have chosen is John’s Gospel.
In each post I will encourage you to read two chapters of the gospel. As the posts will be every two days, you can either do this in one sitting, or perhaps read one chapter each day. Do whatever is convenient for you. Having committed to reading the gospel, try to set aside time to keep up with the readings and posts.
I find it helpful to note any verses that speak to me; I use a journal to write out the verse(s) I believe God is speaking through into my circumstances. Having recorded them spend a little time thinking through how the verse(s) might apply to you and how you could put what you have learned into practice. Spend some time in prayer bringing your thoughts to God.
Starting with the verse quoted above (John 20:31) keep in mind that John’s purpose in writing his gospel was to present the eyewitness evidence for Jesus. As you read John’s Gospel weigh up the evidence that is being presented and allow the Holy Spirit to show you the life-changing nature of what you are reading.
Pray: Father, help us to spend time reading your Word. Give us insight and understanding as we read John’s Gospel together. Amen
