1 In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. - Genesis 1:1 (WEB)
Sometimes you just need to go back to the beginning and look at the fundamentals. The start of a new year is a good time to do this. For a Christian it is going back to the Bible. Daily devotions and prayer are great ways to start or end the day, but Bible study is needed to understand God and His love for His creation. Start the year out right by not just reading the Bible but studying the very Word of God. Study what God is saying in each passage and as a whole. This takes work and time, but in the end it will grow a stronger and joyful relationship with God and that makes it well worth the time and effort.
