Bible Reading 2018

7 Jan

This year we are doing a Bible reading plan at church that starts tomorrow. The plan is to read through several books of the Bible at the pace of one chapter per day, five days a week. The goal is not to get through the whole Bible but just to really listen to what God says through His Word each day. Each member is encouraged not only to read the selected Scripture for the day but to write d own the things in the passage that are noteworthy to them. The hope is that over the course of the year we will see our lives being shaped by daily time with God in His Word.

Here are the quarterly Points of Focus . . .

WINTER 2018 — God’s Wisdom for Life — January through March

Here we will be reading through Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon and a few selected psalms.

SPRING 2018 — God’s Power for Life — April through June

In these months we will be focused on Paul’s epistles, reading from Romans through 1 Thessalonians.

SUMMER 2018 — The Story of God’s People — July through September

During the summer we will reading Old Testament history, from Joshua through 1 Samuel.

FALL 2018 — The Story of Christ and His Church — October through December

In these months we will begin with the gospel of Luke, followed by its companion book Acts, and we will finish the year with the gospel of Mark.

If you’d like to join us, begin tomorrow with Proverbs 1 and read one chapter per day, five days a week. For January, you should have read from Proverbs chapter 1 through chapter 20 by the end of the month. Don’t forget to journal the things God is showing you as you read.
