40 Hour Challenge

40-hoursWhat do you do in 40 hours? Maybe you work for a paycheck for one week or perhaps you watch 40 hours of TV over a month. There is a lot you do or could do over a 40 hour time span. Did you know that the average reader can read through the entire Bible, cover to cover in only 40 hours? Don’t believe me? If you go to http://www.esvbible.org and play the audio on any chapter and read along while the man is reading to you, you will see you are just about twice as fast as him because he pauses for dramatic effect and reads some areas slower. If you take all of his recordings and add them up for the entire bible, he is just over 77 hours of recorded time. So, do you think you can dedicate 1 hour a day to reading the Bible and see how far you can get in 40 days? What about 30 minutes a day and see if it takes you 80 days.

So many people say they don’t have time and they can’t keep up with reading every day. The DBR through Compass Bible Church is SOOOO easy and is already broken down for you in 10-15 minutes of reading per day. Actually it is quite a bit less than that, because the timing is based on the man reading it to you. So, if you don’t have time, download the Compass Bible Church ap and let the man read to you in the morning when you wake up, or on your commute to work, or when you are in the shower. Really there is no excuse for not being in God’s Word. I promise you, if you dedicate yourself each day to reading the Bible for even just one minute per day (read one or two verses a day) God will be greatly pleased with your effort. And who knows, maybe you will start to crave His Word more and more with each passing day!
