I'd like to read my Bible more in 2008 but…..
I’m really not sure where to start. Does that sound like you or someone you know? Many of us have made resolutions or statements about how much more we plan to read our Bibles as the New Year rolls around. But somehow the end of the year comes and we don’t know much more about God’s Word beyond what we heard in church on Sunday. One practical way to make measurable progress against a goal to read your Bible more is to start with a plan. Here are 4 plans for reading your Bible in 2008 that may help:
- The Comprehensive Bible Reading Plan (365 days) – Ready for the incredible privilege and adventure of reading the Bible through cover to cover? We hope so! It takes only about fifteen minutes a day. Enjoy! As you read, ask the Lord to help you see the redemptive story of the Bible. It’s the heartbeat of every book from Genesis to Revelation.
- The Biographical Bible Reading Plan (121 days) – Want to read Bible highlights from Adam to Zechariah? It’s easy! The advantages of this approach include ease in seeing the story of the Bible and becoming acquainted with the entire Who’s Who of the Bible. As you read, be sure to thank God for what he’s going to do in and through you during the months ahead!
- The Survey Bible Reading Plan (61 days) – Want to read highlights from every book of the Bible? This reading plan walks you through key passages from every book of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, in just 61 days. You’ll be able to trace God’s plan of salvation from start to finish in short, readable selections over the course of three months.
- The Chronological Bible Reading Plan (61days) – Would you like to read through the key stories of the Bible in chronological order, tracing the development of God’s plan from Adam and Eve to the church of the New Testament? This reading plan introduces you to the major people and events of the Bible in chronological order, beginning with Creation, moving through the birth and history of the Israel nation, and ending with Revelation’s prophetic words. It’s all broken down into 61 easily-readable segments.
