Happy New Year!!

A fresh start, a clean slate, a new beginning…I love the FIRST day of a new year!!

When Bojangles opens a new restaurant they put on their sign “It’s Bo time!” Well…my friend It’s GO time!!” It is time to begin this year the right way!!

One of the daily disciplines that is so important in the life of a believer is to read the Word of God. I want to encourage you to begin today…this first day of 2016 in His Word!

There are so many plans that are available. This year I am using the “Come Drink Live 365” plan on youversion.

Earlier this week I ran across this incredible verse in Deuteronomy 17:

19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord his God and be careful to observe all the words of this law and these statutes,

It is imperative to READ and HEED the Word of the Living God!!

This verse challenges us to READ the Bible ALL the days of our lives.

Every morning I love to wake up and have a cup…or three of Maxwell House coffee…can I hear an AMEN…and dive right into my daily reading of scripture.

This verse challenges us to HEED the Word!

But if I just read and do not heed it is like what Mark Batterson wrote in his new book “If.” He said ” to read the word of God without obeying the Word is like auditing a class.”

Do you remember what James wrote?

“But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.” James 1:22

I love a new year! I love a fresh start!

Let’s begin this year in the Word and let’s live out that Word daily!!

It’s GO time!!!!!
