World class Bible reader…!


Fully Marked Off

Last Sunday, a precious 76 year old woman (mother of 10 children) greeted me with a smile after the service, and handed me her Bible Reading Schedule fully marked off!

This is the second one she has turned in to us since the beginning of the year!! That means that she has read the Bible through, from cover to cover 2 times already in less than 3 months!

World Champion Bible Reader

Her son tells me that she reads ALL THE TIME! Apparently she stops when it is time to cook and eat, but reads most of the rest of the day! (around 8 hours or so a day!)

She loves God’s Word, and is so eager to learn more! She’s not only a “world class Bible reader”, but possibly a WORLD CHAMPION Bible reader…

Interest In God’s Word

If anyone knows or hears of anyone else (especially at that age) that spends more time in the Word, please let me know! Until then, I like to think she is a World Champion, and it is an honor and inspiration to see this kind of love and interest in God’s Word demonstrated.

Last year she read the Bible through between 3 and 4 times, and this year it looks like she could read twice as much at this rate… Amazing! Glory!

We are encouraged to see others in our fellowship groups continue to regularly read God’s Word as well, and pursue their goal to read all the way through the Bible this year once again. Dawson Trotman once said, “Nothing pays greater dividends for the time invested, than writing God’s words upon the tables of your heart!”.
