Q:

Where should I begin in my Bible reading?


A:

Daily Bible study and prayer are vital to your spiritual life. Read 2 Timothy 3:16-17 and Psalm 119:9, 11, 105.

When asked by a new Christian where he should begin reading the Bible, Mr. Graham said, "Begin by reading the Gospel of John, for it tells us of Christ, of the 'greatest life ever lived,' and what He has done for us. Next read Acts, for it tells us what His first disciples did in the power of God's Holy Spirit. Then perhaps the letters of John and the letter to the Philippians. Then you may want to read Romans, which sets forth the great doctrines which Paul taught."

After you have finished these books, read the rest of the New Testament. You will want to study the Old Testament as well.

Do not be troubled about the things you read and do not understand. Trust the Holy Spirit to enlighten your mind and grant understanding. As you study prayerfully, you will experience a close fellowship with the Lord.
