We are more than conquerors
through him that loved us.

Romans 8:37

"The enemy is behind us.
The enemy is in front of us.
The enemy is to the right
and the left of us.
They can't get away this time!"

General Douglas McArthur

"My words are Spirit and Life, and not to be weighed by the understanding of man. They are not to be drawn forth for vain approbation, but to be heard in silence, and to be received with all humility and great affection."
Thomas à Kempis

Bible in a Year

"Brethren, we must preach
the doctrines;
we must emphasize
the doctrines;
we must go back to
the doctrines.

I fear that the new generation does not know the doctrines
as our fathers knew them."

"One hundred religious persons
knit into a unity by careful
organization do no constitute a
church any more than eleven dead
men make a football team.
The first requisite is life, always."
A. W. Tozer

Move Me with Your Message

Move me with your message once again
It's been so long since my heart burned within
Take me back once more to Calvary
And one more time your message will move me.

My Jesus, I Love Thee
"I'll love thee in life,
I will love thee in death;
And praise thee as long
as thou lendest me breath;
And say when the death dew
lies cold on my brow,
If ever I loved thee,
My Jesus tis now."
by William R. Featherston

(Composed in 1862 at the age of 16)

The School of Christ

By T. Austin Sparks

Search the Scriptures
Acts 17:11
"...they received
the word
with all readiness
of mind,
and searched
the scriptures daily,
whether those things
were so."

The Word of God well understood and religiously obeyed is the shortest route to spiritual perfection. And we must not select a few favorite passages to the exclusion of others. Nothing less than a whole Bible can make a whole Christian.
A. W. Tozer

"We shall find, when we reach the end of life, that all which God has done, however dark and mysterious it may have appeared at the time, was so connected with our good as to make it a proper subject of praise and thanksgiving."

"Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: "   Psalm 103:2

"Brethren, we must preach
the doctrines;
we must emphasize
the doctrines;
we must go back to
the doctrines.

I fear that the new generation does not know the doctrines
as our fathers knew them."

"The Lord gave the word:
great was the company of
those that published it."

Psalm 68:11

A true revival means nothing
less than a revolution,
casting out the spirit
of worldliness,
making God's love
triumph in the heart.

Reading the Bible in Chronological Order
Printable Page

This Bible reading plan will take you through the entire Bible in an historical linier timeline order with the first events first to the last. Each line with a scripture reference represents a days reading, you may progress as you do your devotions in any order you would like. This list will take one year if each line is read each day. If you read more on one day and less on another, you can still track your progress.

  The Chronological New Testament         See also Old Testament

(Luke is a Book that gives an historical account in a logical linier timeline while the other Gospels focus on events: This plan is arranged in order of when they were written:)
