Fall Bible Reading Adventure Check In #1

How did your Fall Bible Reading Adventure go last week?  Please be sure to CHECK-IN!  (Check-in is also available on my blog in the upper right corner.) And, tell us what 5 things you learned about Jesus from last week's Review/Study days in the comment section!

Shrade and I had a great week studying the first few verses of 1 John.  Here is our list of 5 things we learned about Jesus: he existed from the beginning, the Word of Life, eternal life, with the Father, he is light.

Reading Plan for the week:
*Monday- 1 John 1:6-7
*Tuesday- 1 John 1:8-9
*Wednesday- 1 John 1:10
*Thursday- 1 John 2:1-2
*Friday- 1 John 2:3-6
*Saturday- 1 John 1:6-2:6
*Sunday- 1 John 1:6-2:6

*Review/Study-This week I want you to make a chart of what is Light and Dark.  You can make 2 hearts- one black and one white and write the things from 1 John 1:6-2:6 that contrast what God's light is and spiritual darkness.
*And with every week ask "What does God want me to know by reading these verses?  What does God want me to do by reading these verses?"
*Write a prayer to God.

Next week I want you to share the answers to these questions!  Can't wait to hear what God is teaching you.

As you are reading the daily verse(s), take time to answer questions your kids have or explain what the verse means.  Reading and understanding God's Word is key to knowing Him.

If you want more insight into these verses see Good Morning Girls. My schedule is slightly different from theirs.

Be sure to check back on Monday, October 15 for the next reading plan, activity and CHECK-IN!!

Here is the schedule:

We wills start October 1 and read until  November 30.  That's 2 months of reading the Bible EVERY DAY.

We did it!! We made it through the first week! Hopefully this time we will make it all the way through. My 4 year old is doing pretty well at reminding me if I forget, he really likes our reading time and checking off the number on the chart.

The 5 things we learned about Jesus are: He has always existed, He is eternal life, He appeared and was seen, Jesus is the light, He is the son of God.

Thanks so much for leading us through this study!
