Bible Reading Plan

I have a confession to make.  I don't read my Bible every day.


Yes, I'm imperfect and make mistakes.  While I love Christ and try to always follow Him, I fail Him by not spending enough time in the Word of God.  I know that only by reading the Bible will I have a closer relationship with God and learn more about His nature.

A friend of mine started a new Facebook group to help motivate and encourage people in reading the Bible. I've made the commitment that in 2013 I'm going to read the entire Bible.  I've read every book at least once and many of them several times.  But I haven't been that committed in several years.

A great tool that was shown to me is  This site is free and has numerous Bible reading plans, as well as multiple translations.  I'm following the Chronological reading plan, as I think it's interesting to consider the Biblical events in the order that they happened.

So as we go into 2013 I strongly encourage everyone (both of you who read this blog) to do the same thing. Spend more time in prayer and reading the Bible.  I think it will change your perspective and life as much as I expect it to change mine.

  1. I have actually done that once - but didn't get a lot out of it doing it on my own. I am glad I go to a church that goes through the bible, verse by verse (as opposed to topical sermons that hit on one or two verses) and so it takes longer to get through the entire bible, but I love that I have someone that can explain it to me as we go through it together as a church.

    It's a great thing to get into the Word every day - no doubt about it that saying that not reading the bible every day makes one weak (week) is so true!

    I pray you are able to do this and in so doing grow closer in your walk with the Lord!
