Your Reading Plans for 2014
It’s a brand new year so there’s no better time to develop your plan to grow deeper in God’s word this year. Why not plan to read through the entire Bible this year? If you don’t have a plan yet, here are a few suggestions:
First, pick a reading schedule. There a dozens of plans to pick from but here are a couple of great options. A Daily Reading schedule is listed on the DAILY BIBLE READING page of this website. This schedule is a Seven Day program which attempts to put the Bible in chronological order covering the entire Bible in a one year period. CLICK HERE to view the Seven Day program. If a Five Day schedule would work better for you, check out the 2014 Five Day Bible Reading Schedule published by the folks at www.bibleclassmaterial.com. The Five Day plan has only five readings per week instead of seven. This allows time for catching up, or for taking a day off to read other parts of the Bible for class preparation, etc. It’s also designed to let you read the entire Bible during the year (or if you choose, just the New Testament). CLICK HERE to view the Five Day program.
Next, set aside a specific time each day and then stick to it. Mornings are great, but feel free to use any time that consistently works for you. Consistency is the key.
And finally, read the Bible for the sake of learning, not simply to accomplish your assigned reading. Start with a short prayer asking for God to give you wisdom and understanding, then be refreshed and encouraged by the words you read.
Let’s all endeavor to make 2014 a year that brings us closer to God through his Holy Word!
