A friend in TX helped me find such a way. He said he was reading 1st John. I said that won’t take too long. He informed me that his method was to read it multiple times. His objective–read it 15 or 20 times. I’ve latched onto this idea. It keeps me from getting bogged down, helps me gain new insights each time through and gives increasing clarity on the big picture. Something else I like about this particular method. It likely emulates the way the early Christians absorbed a letter.
Here’s the main thing. Read the undiluted Word of God for all it worth this next year. You and everyone around you will be greatly blessed.
