So will the words that come out of my mouth not come back empty-handed.
They’ll do the work I sent them to do, they’ll complete the assignment I gave them.
Isaiah 55:11 (MSG)
In a year of isolation, BIBLE 2020 helped people across the world gather around God’s word.
This year has been difficult, with many experiencing illness, isolation and sorrow. In the face of these challenges, a community has grown on BIBLE 2020 – a gathering of people around God’s word.
BIBLE 2020 is a global initiative encouraging the church across the world to unite and read the Bible aloud each day because, as the words of Isaiah say (above): “the words that come out of my mouth will not come back empty-handed.”
As this year draws to a close, BIBLE 2020 will continue into 2021.
Watch this video, download and share it with your church, and join the biggest public reading of God’s Word the world has seen.
