You have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God. (1 Pet 1:23)

The Bible Society Australia have identified that only a relatively small number of Australian Christians engage with God on a daily basis—they claim 1 in 5. For people who love the God of Word, this is more than a little disappointing.

But how do we address that? How do we encourage the Christians around us to fix our eyes on Jesus, to hear God’s voice, to spend time in his word daily—or to do that ourselves? How do we develop habits like these?

The Bible Society have come up with a campaign to do just that. It’s a beautifully simple idea:

We’re asking you, your friends & family and churches & schools to commit to reading the Bible daily, starting with 25 words for thirty-one days.

During the month of October thousands of people across the country have committed to reading God’s word. Why don’t you do the same? (Of course, there’s no reason not to get on board even if you’re one of our international readers.)

There’s loads of resources to help get you started, videos with lots of Aussie Christians, a series that walks you through Mark’s gospel, and much more besides. Go check it out.
