H.O.P.E. University presents the Hope Lutheran Church Bible Challenge. This is an invitation for anyone who would like to read the Bible to join us. It is our hope that as you read the Bible with us this year you will develop the spiritual discipline that is daily reading and reflection on Scripture. Brothers and sisters, it is in reading and reflection that we can more readily grow in our knowledge of God. We hope that you might take the time to write your own reflections in a journal or even in your Bible. (Yes, it is ok to write, underline, highlight, etc. in your Bible. You have your Pastors’ permission.)
People have found that the daily practice of reading the Bible is life-giving. It reminds us of the story of God and our place in it. It reminds us that we are not alone in our struggles, nor are we the first to experience them. It shapes our hearts in ways that are best attributed to the Holy Spirit of God.
