Folks, I’ve just shared this with a sister in Christ, and want to share it with you all as well:
Just as a reminder, we suggest that new believers in the one true faith read: 1) the Gospel according to John (the 4th book of the New Testament) a few times before, then, 2) going back to Matthew and reading through the whole New Testament a few times before, then, 3) going to Genesis and beginning to read the Old Testament all the way through.
But: 4) even while reading the Old Testament, it’s always important, too, to stay engaged with the New Testament throughout, as it’s the lifeblood of the one true faith as it exists now that Jesus Christ has already suffered and died on the cross to pay for all of our sins and has been resurrected to newness of life, just as we will be so long as we continue to abide in this one true faith.
May this be an encouragement for you, Sister [and, by extension, for you all!]. 🙏🔥
