Today is sort of a new milestone for me: I have completely read through the entire Old Testament in the Bible! To be honest, I’ve been a Christian for awhile and never read through the entire Bible before. I will be beginning the New Testament tomorrow and I am extremely excited!
Many people do not pay much attention to the Old Testament since we are now living under the new covenant. But I still feel that reading through the Old Testament should be required because it says so much about God’s character. I learned how God is astonishingly patient with us and how He truly loves his children. While God is patient and loving, He is also like a parent who disciplines His child. Any good parent would discipline their children!
I am now ready to begin the New Testament and read all about the one that the Old Testament pointed to so many times: JESUS.
