Growing up in church the Bible has been a part of my life since my very beginning. I remember “read your Bible” was often retorted by my mom for any boredom expressed by me or my siblings. Needless to say as kids that was the last thing on our minds. Even after accepting Christ as my personal savior, the Bible was often not my book of choice. Much of it seemed to make little sense to me and I couldn’t understand how to incorporate into my daily life. But thankfully that has changed.
As an attendee of an Pentecostal church, the KJV was the translation of choice we read. Over the years, I have added several other translations of the Bible to my library. I find that at different times in my life, I read more from certain translations. Currently I have been reading a lot from the New Living Translation and I love how the Message translate some passages. Each of them add deeper insight into a passage of scripture. While KJV will always be good starting point for me, I appreciate the opportunity to read verses in different translations. That’s why I was pleased to have the opportunity to be a part of the Common English Bible (CEB), Thank You-Come Again –I Promise blog tour.
