Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. (Psalm 119:105 ESV)
They received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so. (Acts 17:11 ESV)
Some use reading schedules to guide them through the Bible in a year. I am disciplined to be in the Word daily, but have never successfully used a schedule to get through the entire Bible in one year. One thing I do use, however, is a checklist. It has all sixty-six books of the Bible, with their chapters, and I put a slash through the numbers as a read. Feel free to print it for yourself and pass it on to others.
Reading schedules have their advantages and disadvantages. Of course one of the advantages of a schedule is that it takes the reader through the entire Bible in a given period of time, say six months, one year, or two years. A checklist can accomplish the same thing. One thing I like about the checklist is that it allows more flexibility. If I desire to slow down the pace for a while, I can. Additionally, if one gets behind on a rigid schedule, there is a risk that one will give up entirely.
My hope and prayer is to encourage you to be in the Word in 2007, and that your time would be richly blessed.
Grace and Peace
P.S. Here are some reading schedules for those who are more inclined in that way:
Navigators reading plans — various schedules to get through the entire Bible or just the New Testament in a year.
Through the Bible reading plans — Chronological, historical, beginning to end, blended
Robert Murray M’Cheyne reading schedule — twice through the NT & Psalms, once through the OT
