Read with me cover-to-cover. I'll share what I've learned in the dark, in the light. Start the Old & New Testament on January 1st. About 3 chapters per day through whole New Testament. About 10 minutes of your day. Join us as the "axe of Biblical Love thaws the frozen parts" (66LL) in our hearts. My focus this year is sharing what God has done for me over the years---and trusting God to weave every single day. And I will offer a prayer over your life, every single day.

January 4 "Our Shield & Reward" Genesis 12-15
“Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward." Genesis 15:1 Perfect words breathed on Abram. Perfect words breathed on me. Weighty verses for so short a theology. 6 sentences. Someone called it the "lynchpin" for understanding the relationship between faith and works. Abram was fresh off the battle over the rescue of Lot. God tells him to fear not for God is a Shield. How comforting is that to a man who just fought for his life. God says that He is our reward. And the word, reward, means "pay" or "wages." God Himself is our reward. Is that enough?
