February is a key month in the Bible Reading Plan, because it is the shortest month of the year! Its’s easy to fall behind, so make sure you are keeping up, or you take time to catch up.
In the past, when I fall behind on the plan, I may read The Message or NLT version to help me catch up.
I love the book of Acts. There are a couple of repetitive stories, but for the most part it is an exciting declaration of what God did, and what he can do again today!
Watch for Acts 15. This may seem like a boring story at first, but it is one of the most important stories of the Bible. The Jerusalem Council of Acts 15 changed the nature of Christianity for non-Jewish Christian community, of whom I am a part. So much of the New Testament judgments filters through the important conclusions of the Jerusalem Council in Acts 15.
I also love Paul’s witness to King Agrippa in Acts 25-26. The statement from King Agrippa, “Then Agrippa said to Paul, “You almost persuade me to become a Christian.” – Acts 26:28 (NKJV). What a climax in this story!
There is so much to learn about ourselves as we study the lives of Bible characters.
