I decided that I needed to spend some extra time in God's Word today. I've been slipping in my reading.

I think devotionals are great, but I get more when I just read the Bible on my own.

In my daily Bible reading I started with the book of Ruth (because that is where my book marker was). I love that book! I promised myself that if I made it through 1st and 2nd Samuel then I would get to read Ruth again today.
I only made it to 2nd Samuel 12.

I always learn so much about the love and patience the Lord has for us when I read about David and his struggles. Yet, he was considered a man after God's own heart. God remained faithful to him, even when he fell.
I not only stumble, I fall flat on my face!
I'm so thankful God doesn't give up on me.

Oh well, I can always read Ruth again anyway. It will probably remain one of my favorite books of the Bible because it represents such a beautiful and pure love.  

What is your favorite book of the Bible and why?

I really like Romans and the other books you mentioned too.
Paul was another awesome man of God who we can learn a lot from.

Ahhhh, where to start....where to finish?

Jonah
It reminds me constantly that no matter how petulant I am, no matter how self-righteous I may be, no matter how much I concentrate on what I want, that God is faithful and just, and produces miracles of salvation in spite of me, (the sailors on the ship, the great city of Nineveh), and teaches me lessons about myself in the process (the vine and the worm).

Job
"I shall rain on the just and the unjust".
"Now I have seen thee with mine eyes....and I abhor myself......"
"I know that in the last day, I SHALL SEE my Savior stand upon the earth".  
What else can I say?

Oklahoma Howdy to All,

I have many favorites. If I had to narrow it down to two, it would be Romans and Ephesians. If I had to choose one, it would have to be Ephesians.

Understanding God's Grace, HIS Love, and HIS Gift to us is beautiful. Understanding THE CROSS and what Jesus Christ did for us and why is the most precious event in human history. This is our hope and what we cling to in a dark and dying world. In short, Jesus is our LIGHT and SALVATION!

I keep coming back to Ephesians because it reveals and glorifies THE LIGHT.

There is Love In Jesus,
Tom

 Grin Jonah  Grin

You know it started out because of the mention at the very end about that God cares about the Cattle.  But in my walk with God, I've gone back over and over and find there's a million other reasons.

One of them is that Jonah learned that the path of least resistance isn't always set up by the Lord, there for him to find.

Sometimes I get this idea in my head that I'm going to do this or that and wala it's already set up for me.  People even say the things I want to hear.  The Lord, however, is always there with a big fish.   Grin

 Grin  Does anyone out there share with me the working knowledge of the insides of a belly of a fish?   Grin

Doing unto others as you would have them do unto you would include not finding your neighbor's biggest fault and then harping on it as if it were your mission.

Then there's the part--my favorite concept is that as Christians, we can't go around hating sinners.  The Ninevites were in fact terrible to the Isrealites and there were solid reasons for folks to not like them.  It's up to us to live out God's love.  It's up to God to punish folks.  It's up to us to live the example and live the standard and see that we fail the standard and then make mercy for other people to fail also and still love them.   It's up to God to give us the strenghth to do so.  And in His mercy, He will send big fishes  Grin when necesary.  It makes me LOVE my Lord even more.  Does anyone ever think about this when they see the symbol of the Jesus fish??

It's sort of a fear or the Lord, and the big fish He might have to send, sign for me.   Grin  And yet in His mercy we can trust Him to do that for us.

Jesus, remember me... Luke 23:42

New Testament?
Mine fall in order:
The Gospels - Acts - Romans then the rest of the letters - Revelations.
And I think they are in that order for a good reason.

I won't spell those reasons out... But if someone wants to take a stab at why they are in the order they are in I'd read your reasoning. Grin

Woops - maybe that's for a different thread?  I don't want to mess with the question at hand...

I think Old Testament is really up for grabs.  There are some I love to read, and then a few I find "numbing" (who begat WHO!).  How can you rate History against Songs against Prophesy?  I think it depends on one’s mood.  Then, I guess one’s personality comes into play…  What suicidal mind-set wouldn’t prefer Lamentations?   Wink
Although Ecclesiastes rates WAY up there!  Grin

My favorite is the book of Sirach (Ecclesiasticus).  The prose is absolutely beautiful.

My favorite is the book of Job. The book of Job shows what faith can do, if you are faithful to God.

I just finished reading 2 Chronicles.
I'm starting to think that my favorite book of the Bible is whichever book I happen to be reading at the time.  Grin

I love the Acts of the Apostles.  It's nice to see the similarities in the Early Church and the Church I belong to.
