Use This Instead Of a Bible Reading Plan

It's a New Year and a time for hope and new beginnings. Many Christians decide in January to start a new Bible reading plan.

In and of itself this is not wrong, but I would like to persuade you that it may be a symptom of a misunderstanding.

First the appeal of starting a new plan:

  • It has an end date

  • Someone else designed it so it must be good

  • It allows you to keep things fresh and not get on autopilot

But imagine for a moment instead of reading the Bible we change the topic to learning to speak fluent Spanish.

Every three months you decide on a topic that interests you. January might be learning Spanish words for fitness, February Spanish words for relationships, March Spanish words for "I am frozen" etc.

Jumping from topic to topic and starting and stopping would greatly hinder your progress.

To get good at something you need a system that repetitiously immerses you in what you are trying to learn.

for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. 1 Timothy 4

Having a system to grasp God's word is much more valuable. I recommend the Prof Horner system. You will end up reading about 3,650 chapters each year. WOAH! This is VERY helpful and will aid your growth and family discipleship ability.

Think about it this way: There are 1,189 chapters in the Bible. It makes sense to have a gameplan.

Commit to it and make sure that you are rightly handling the Living Word of God.

"The law of Your mouth is better to me Than thousands of gold and silver pieces." Psalms 119:72

Have a great day!
