By listening to the Audio Bible, I recall the verses that I had read before. It gives me courage and strength, and I would like to read more and grow. It also encourages me to learn more about God’s promises in His Word. The Word helps me to overcome problems. Now I am learning to humble myself and am willing to share God’s Word with others.
Here it is- What a great way to encourage spiritual discipline through this 40 days listening through the New Testament. Must confess that I took more than 40 days though! Listening with reading helps me to have better concentration on the Bible passages too! It gives a whole new dimension to the usual process of reading silently.
Reading through the bible was my 2014 new year resolution, but after one year, I found myself just completing the four gospels… so I was really glad when the church embarked on this WISE program as I managed to complete listening through the whole NT within 2 months! Unlike reading, I’m able to listen to the bible while driving and walking, thus maximising the pockets of time to achieve my goal. Interestingly, I picked up certain messages while listening that I didn’t when reading the same passage. I enjoyed it so much that I have proceeded to listen to the Old Testament and looks like I’m on my way to complete going through the bible this year! Highly encourage everyone to go through this program as it’s a refreshing way to study God’s Word!
The (audio) programme was in short a very pleasant surprise – highly practical, manageable and convenient for a millennial as I. I went in with no expectations at all, took the liberty of extending the programme way beyond the 40 days just to complete it at my own pace, and emerged enriched and blessed with the many truths God revealed through His word. I might add that this would also be the first time completing the New Testament despite being a believer for over a decade.
