Christians & The Scriptures

My plan for my devotional life in 2010 is to keep up with the ESV Daily Reading Plan (New Testament in morning, Old Testament and Psalms at night)- and so far it has been going well. Jesus is convicting the mess out of me in the sermon on the mount (via Matthew).. Anyway, I wanted to encourage all you guys to dig into your Scriptures with energy and hope this New Year!

Someone much smarter than me (Eugene Peterson) had this to say about the Scriptures:

"Christians don’t simply learn or study or use Scripture; we assimilate it, take it into our lives in such a way that it gets metabolized into acts of love, cups of cold water, missions into all the world, healing and evangelism and justice in Jesus’ name, hands raised in adoration of the Father, feet washed in company with the Son.”

What is your plan to dig into the Scriptures this year? How is it going so far??
