Thirteen People I've Read About Lately in the Bible
As I've said before, I'm once again attempting the "Bible in 90 Days" challenge. I'm up through II Chronicles so far. These are a few people that really impressed me in my reading so far!

1. Enoch - This was a man who walked with God. He was so close to God that one day God just took him on to heaven. He never had to die. (Genesis 5:21-24)

2. Abram (later Abraham) - Of course we all know about Abraham, but no matter how many times I read about Abraham, I'm always impressed with how he left all he knew behind to follow God. God's call for Abraham can be found in Genesis 12.

3. Miriam - because she stayed by to make sure that baby Moses was going to be okay when he was placed in the river. (Exodus 2:4)

4. Moses - God was willing to use him in spite of his past. (He murdered an Egyptian in Exodus 2:12.) He went from being a murderer to being a leader used by God.

5. Jethro - Moses' father-in-law because he recognized that the God of Israel was the ONE TRUE GOD. (Exodus 18:11)

6. Joshua - because he learned to be a leader by following a leader. He obeyed Moses because he knew that Moses followed the Lord. (Exodus 17:9)

7. Deborah - because her witness for God was so strong that Barak would not go to battle without her (Judges 4:8)

8. Jael - because she didn't let her husband's evil alliances (Judges 4:17) keep her from destroying an evil man (Judges 4:21)

9. Gideon - because he obeyed God even when his army was dwindled down to 300 people (Judges 7)

10. Ruth - because she would not leave her mother in law even though it meant leaving all she knew behind. (Ruth 1)

11. Samuel - because he learned to listen for God's voice as a young child. (I Samuel 3:10)

12. David - because God forgave him of his sins and blessed him (II Samuel 12 - David had sinned with Bathsheba, and God took a child from them, but he gave them another child, Solomon, who would one day be king.)

13. Josiah - because he served God and didn't turn away from him to the right or to the left (II Kings 22:1-2)

These are just a few of the many people I've read about so far. I hope that I can learn some things from them and live my life closer to God because of what I've learned from their lives!

Can you imagine being so close to God here on earth that He just takes you to be with Him. No earthly dying first! That just blows my mind!

oh, that's good stuff! I'll add Paul, because God used him, too, even though he persecuted believers before!
