Bible Reading Plans

CSL047The Word of God is living and active.  God uses his word to encourage us in the faith, challenge us, and speek to the deepest part of our souls.  A daily Bible reading program is a practical way to consistently take in God’s Word.  I often need a good plan in order to stay consistent in my walk with God. 

One small group I was involved in decided to all keep one another reading the Bible.  We each committed to reading a portion of Scripture each day for a year so that we would get all the way through the Bible.  Because we were encouraging one another along, we all were able to accomplish our goal, grow in our relationships, and stay close to God.  There are many good Bible reading plans out there to try.  The important thing is that you pick one that  you are comfortable with and go for it!  Make sure you have someone who can help track your progress and hear your insights from your reading.  Here are a few Bible reading plans that I recommend.

Jesus talks about the good soil that bears fruit for God in Luke 8:15, “As for that in the good soil, they are those who, hearing the workd, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patience.”  Let’s continue to pray that we would have true hearts to listen to God’s word and do what it says–so that God might bear fruit through our lives.

One thought on “Bible Reading Plans

  1. These are great plans to stay on track in God’s word. I am currently going through the ESV Study Bible reading plan. I went through the Discipleship Plan a couple of years ago. Both are great resources!
