Here's A Bible Reading Plan as New Year Begins

Earlier this month I tweeted and facebooked out a site for you to have daily scripture sent to your mobile device so you can read a daily devotion everyday right from your iPhone, iPad, or Android! (See Our Daily Bread  for that).

Today, I want to give you another great Bible Reading Plan to help you make reading scripture a priority as you go into the new year. It’s called The Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan from “The Navigators,” (NavPress).

There are readings for only 25 days per month—with the extra days to make up a day you miss. 

Here is what they say on their site:

The Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan offers special features that will aid you in your journey through the Bible.

• By reading from four separate places in the Scriptures every day, you should be able to better grasp the unity of the Scriptures, as well as enjoy the variety of four different viewpoints.

• You can begin at any point during the year.

•To prevent the frustration of falling behind, which most of us tend to do when following a Bible reading plan, each month of this plan gives you only 25 readings. Since you’ll have several “free days” each month, you could set aside Sundays either not to read at all or to catch up on any readings you may have missed in the past week.

•If you finish the month’s readings by the twenty-fifth, you could use the final days of the month to study the passages that challenged or intrigued you.

•If reading through the entire Bible in one year looms as too large a task, you can alter the plan to meet your needs. For example, you could read the gospels and the wisdom books this year, and the other two categories next year.

In the year ahead, ask God each day to speak directly to you from the Scripture portions you read. Be expectant, and let your continual exposure to God’s Word reshape your attitudes and behavior as you gain a better understanding of every part of His written testimony to us.

Walk by Faith,
