Maintaining Unity

One of the best ways to maintain the unity that come about when we first received Christ is the contextual reading and rereading of scripture.

This includes reading all of the New Testament fairly rapidly, four chapters a day. If you are a slow reader it will take you about twenty minutes each day. You will finish the New Testament in about two months.

Concurrent with this, pick a short book of the New Testament (1 John) and read all five chapters each day for a week. This will reinforce what you read yesterday plus you will learn more each day.

Confess as sin any violations of the text. Choose to believe and obey what you read. Add a new book each week to your repetitive reading.

The next post will give you a reading schedule.
