An important Revelation in my Life

Today my wonderful husband and I have begun the journey of reading and discussing the entire bible in one year.  

Why Read The Bible?

"I'm a busy person. I have a lot to do. Why should I spend my
time reading the Bible? I don't have time to do all I need to
do as it is."

"I already believe in Jesus Christ, that He's the Son of God
and my Savior. I've already heard the Gospel."

"Why should I read the Bible?"

Please think about the following Scriptures. Then, you will
understand why you should read the Bible.

JOHN 8:31-32 RSV
31 Jesus then said to the Jews who had believed in him, "If you
continue in my word, you are truly my disciples,
32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you

JOHN 14:23-24 Rieu
23 Jesus replied: 'If anyone loves me he will cherish my word;
my Father will love him and we will come to him and make him
our abode.
24 He that does not love me neglects my words. Yet the word you
hear is not my own but that of the Father who sent me.

ACTS 20:32 NKJ
32 "So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of
His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an
inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

I will be 61 years old January 27, 2009 and for all this time I thought I was a Christian.  But I knew nothing of nor tried to live God's word and desired to just believe and leave it at that feeling pretty smug that I was guaranteed a spot in heaven THE IMPORTANT REVELATION IN MY LIFE TODAY IS THAT: Until  3 years ago I was one of the ones that was going to be left behind during the Rapture.  Given a second  chance but having to endure horrific times.  NOW....being born again, I desire and yearn to know and follow God's word and I KNOW I have graduated to being one of the ones NOT left behind.  Thank you Jesus for taking the veil from my eyes!!!!
