How would you describe your spiritual growth? How do you measure it? How does it compare with last year?
Do you want to change it for the better? Join me as we read the Bible in 2016!
Thinking about reading through the Bible in a year may seem a little overwhelming. But it shouldn’t be. It’s simple to do, but it isn’t necessarily easy.
If you want to read through the entire Bible in a year, you will only read 4-5 chapters a day, every day. If you want to read through the New Testament, you can do it by reading just one chapter a day, five days a week. Last year a friend of mine simply looked at the number of pages in his Bible and divided it by 365 and came up with just under three pages a day every day. Like I said, it’s simple!
But where do you start? Just start at the beginning? For your first attempt, I would recommend one of many Bible reading plans out there. I have included two that you can download from my website: Discipleship Journal’s Book at a Time Bible Reading Plan and The Navigators’ 5-5-5 Bible Reading Plan (New Testament only). Just print out the plan and keep it with your Bible, marking off each day’s readings.
Any plan is better than no plan! So print one of these and follow along, or sign up online with Bible.com. You can even use their Bible App (available for many devices) to guide you through each day’s readings.
Let’s do this!
