Daily Planned Bible Reading

PAGE UNDER CONSTRUCTION!  The layout of the reading plan was poor, so I’m redoing it!

I personally struggle to read straight through from Genesis to Revelation.  This plan has worked for me, and I sometimes need to go slower, and therefore not complete the NT twice in a year.  If this doesn’t work for you, find something else that does!  I just wanted to share what helps me!  I also don’t do this every year.  Some years I focus more on studying particular books or themes as God leads.  Remember – Read God’s Word at the pace God sets for you.  It doesn’t matter how many times you read the Bible if it is not effecting you.  We are not in competition … we want growth.  The question is, are you reading it constantly and is it challenging you?  We need to be in God’s Word, and as growth occurs we should be more knowledgeable about it in increasing measure.  But the pace is between each person and God.

Planned Daily Bible Reading (By Professor J. Elwood Evans – Dallas Theological Seminary. —“This simple plan for daily Bible reading will take you through the New Testament twice a year and the Old Testament once a year if you read an average of two chapters each morning and two chapters each evening.  The Old and New Testament books are interspersed to increase interest.  The Old Testament books are read in order historically while the New Testament books are grouped by subject matter.  The time from December 13-31 can be used to catch up on any readings missed during the year.”  Taken from the book, Creative Counterpart, by Linda Dillow.)
