Our aim for this congregation is that every member of every age would be in the Word every day. Why? On average only 1/3 of active church members in America read their Bible every day. What’s our number? 3/3 is a mathematical fraction, a whole number that equals 1 if you work out the division. What might happen with our spiritual growth and kingdom growth as we hear the Word more and more?
Want to grow? Pick up your Bible and read. Read it for yourself at home, work, or listen to it on the road. Read it with others in Bible study. Read it to others like children and the elderly.
Need some help? How about a Bible app for your phone like the Lutheran Hour Ministries daily devotion app or the YouVersion Bible app? Do a quick search on your phone or find them here:
Some apps and studies are better than others, but there are dozens to choose from. Or dust off your Bible at home. Just get started and get reading more. Why not read today?
God says, “we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ” (Ephesians 4:15). How can we be whole and grow up as Christians? Along with regular worship where we as 1 body receive and celebrate Christ’s gifts, God tells us to “encourage one another and build one another up daily” (1 Thessalonians 5:11).
Let’s be a 3/3 church.
