Why You Should Choose A Bible Reading Plan for 2015


It is a good idea to make it a habit of having a Bible reading plan each year.  Not all are the same, and not all read through the whole Bible in a year.  There are different plans to suit different purposes.  The point is simple:

Do you have a plan for Bible reading in 2015?

If so, great!  If not, why not?  Were you just hoping to absorb the material in your Bible through osmosis?  If it didn’t work for you back in high school it’s not going to work now.  Get over it, to learn what is in the Bible one must actually spend time reading the Bible.  If you don’t plan to read your Bible, I doubt you will.

For myself, the other elders at my church, and our congregation we have chosen to read the ESV Study Bible Reading Plan.  It takes about 10-15 minutes a day, and it’s aim is to get you through the whole Bible.  This is our plan, and it helps me a lot that our church is doing it together.

What is your plan?  Here are more options if you haven’t chosen yet.
