the discipline of 1 Corinthians 13…

I’ve initiated a new discipline in my life for 2009…I am reading 1Corinthians 13 every day.  Our church’s vision statement comes out of this chapter…

     CrossRoads…where faith, hope and love intersect…

So, I thought, in order to really understand the words “faith, hope and love,” I could attend to this one chapter for awhile.  I could pause here and let the Love Chapter sink into my soul.  Every once in awhile, it is good to linger at one spot and see what that place has to teach us…

I have found that reading something over and over again is definately a “discipline”…in that it doesn’t always come easy.  But, after that, the “disciple” part rises out of the reading.  I am learning the depth of one writing and every day i am thinking about how to apply these timely and timeless word to my life.  It is changing me…  I can see how this chapter could change CrossRoads United Methodist Church, and I can see how this one set of words could change our world…

It makes me wonder, “what if this one life could be all about faith, hope and love?”  It makes me wander down paths previously untread…  It makes me thirsty for the deep waters…

If you could pick one chapter of the ancient Scriptures to read every day for a year, what chapter would you choose?
