Find the truth of Scripture for every age …
It is our greatest desire is to help God’s children of every age, discover the Truth found in Scripture.
What is BibleCounts? BibleCounts started as our family devotional. The Bible is filled with Historical, and Scientific facts. There is objective truth to be found in the Bible. It was our experience that Christian families teach kids “Bible Stories” in a way that does not really convey that the “stories” are actually true. We wanted to teach our son how to read and study the Bible for content and context in a way that was still entertaining and fun. There had to be a way to share scripture with our children and have it be interactive and provide a foundation for comprehension and understanding. More than just Bible stories, we wanted to create a Bible study. We initially would read from scripture as a family and discuss what we had read. We prayed that God would show us a way to teach our son to read his Bible daily. God is so faithful! He answered that prayer in an idea to create a reading comprehension test much like the system used in many schools. Our mission is to have a website that all school age children can use to inspire them to read God’s word daily.
At first we started writing down our discussion questions and picked which ones we could use on a new site. Then the idea of a point reward system with prizes came to mind. The prizes are just icing on the cake…the real prize is in what children around the world will learn by reading His word! The rest of the story is being created and told here and now. You can be a part of this story, as a user, contributor, sponsor, mentor or a prayer partner. Join our online family and be a part of our devotional. The mission field starts in your own home.
God calls us to read His word (2 Tim 3:16-17) and to spread His name throughout the world (Mark 16:15).
Who is this mission for? We can only provide tools for our kids and students. BibleCounts needs you, the parents, teachers, aunts, uncles, grandma, grandpa, pastors and mentors to use this tool to stir up a desire for God’s Word. Get to know our site, use the tools, offer suggestions for improvement, and most importantly, use them to start sharing the Word with your children and students. If you have suggestions, we welcome them on our Contact Us page.
“Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” Mark 10:15
Where do we start this mission? If we are serious about changing our culture back to one of honor, productivity, respect, and courage we have to start in the beginning. Scripture tells us that it is the first things we learn that stay with us. To paraphrase a line from the movie Karate Kid, “we need good strong roots”.
“Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Prov 22:6
Why does BibleCounts start in the New Testament? It is out of Love that we desire to share the word of God and it is out of Love that the Heavenly Father shared the Son with man. Although it is necessary to study the Bible COMPLETELY, we were led to start with the Hope that we have in Love . We know we all fall short of the perfection and glory of our Creator. We already know many paths away from the Father. The path back to Him is through the Love of Jesus Christ. This is what EVERYONE needs to know. Jesus provides no condemnation, He asks for us to come to Him exactly where we are and how we are. He tells us to repent and give up our old ways and follow Him. Accept the free gift of forgiveness and walk with our Savior. Accept the gift of the Holy Spirit and you will know the Love of the Father and your desire for His Word will consume you.
And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 1 Cor 13:2
