Read the Bible in a Year Week 36

This week we're moving into the book of Job. Job is considered to be the very first Bible book to ever be written, even before Moses penned the Pentateuch (the first five chapters of the Bible between 1445 B.C. and 1405 B.C.). Notice how much Job and others know about the world at such an early date.

Be Patient and Preserving

Daily Bible Verse
James 5:7-8 (NIV)
Patience in Suffering
Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, 
until the Lord’s coming. 
See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, 
patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains. 
You too, be patient and stand firm, 
because the Lord’s coming is near.

Are you a child of God?

Daily Bible Verse 1 John 3:1-2 (NIV)
The Children of God
See what great love the Father has lavished on us, 
that we should be called children of God! 
And that is what we are! 
The reason the world does not know us is that
it did not know Him. 
Dear friends, now we are children of God, 
and what we will be has not yet been made known. 
But we know that when Christ appears, 
we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.

Daily Bible Verse Isaiah 55:10-11

Isaiah 55:10-11 (NIV)
An Invitation to Abundant Life
As the rain and the snow
    come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
    without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
    so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My mouth:
    It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
    and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
