Bible Reading Plan
Awesome thing happened this evening. I like to have an empty inbox when I go to bed. It helps me sleep better, knowing what’s there. I answer quick stuff and mark the rest for follow-up the next morning at work if needed.
I had an email from one of our youth with a number of questions. One pertained to what’s the best way to read through the Bible over a period of time. I figured you might be interested in the resource as well:
- I like to tell people to open the JAR: John, Acts, Romans. John tells the story of Jesus’ life. Acts tells the story of the early church. And Romans gives many of the key truths of the Christian faith.
- If your goal is to read every word in the BIble in 3 years, you’ll want to be systematic in your approach. Zondervan has put together a number of plans for reading the Bible, including a 3-Year plan, which might be perfect for you. This plan gives about 1 chapter a day for you to read and prints off an easy check-off sheet.
- Another option is to go more topical in your study and then fill in the gaps at the end. The same site from Zondervan lists a number of 30 day Bible reading plans that might be of interest to you. They also have some nice 2-Week plans. You could print the 3-Year plan and mark it off while reading the shorter plans. Then, look over the 3-Year plan after you’ve finished the shorter plans and fill in the gaps.
