To read the Bible in a year, read Colossians 4.16 on October 12, In the year of our Lord 2016

Should you only read Scripture that you think pertains to you, or should you read all the word of God? Paul urged the churches to read one another’s letters that he had sent to them,

Now when this epistle is read among you, see that it is read also in the church of the Laodiceans, and that you likewise read the epistle from Laodicea (Colossians 4.16). 

The Colossian Church needed to hear what Paul said to the Laodiceans, and the Laodiceans needed to hear what Paul said to the Colossians.

The Holy Spirit did not see it as necessary for the letter to the Laodiceans to make it into Scripture, but He did include the Letter to the Colossians. Therefore, He wants us to read it and gain from it.

Questions:

  • Do you avoid certain Bible Books?
  • If so, why?
