"They began to rejoice and to glorify the word of Jehovah, and all those who were rightly disposed for everlasting life became believers." (Acts 13:48)
Can you make it your goal to read the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation meditatively once every year? By reading about four chapters a day, you can read the Bible's 1189 chapters in one year. Each king of Israel was to read Jehovah's Law "all the days of his life." Evidently, Joshua did something similar. (Deuteronomy 17:14-20; Joshua 1:7, 8) How important it is that spiritual shepherds read God's Word daily, for this helps them to impart "healthful teachings"! (Titus 2:1) The nearness of Jehovah's day should move you to attend Christian meetings regularly and participate in them as fully as possible. (Hebrews 10:24, 25) Doing so will help you to hone your skills as a Kingdom proclaimer who seeks to find and help those rightly disposed for everlasting life.
