It is not too late to make a Bible-reading goal for 2010! Many make a New Year’s resolution to read the Bible more consistently than they have in the past, and many don’t stick to that resolution.
Here’s what works for me.
Rather than using a reading schedule, with a daily listing of what chapters to read, I usually use a Bible reading checklist:
It has all sixty-six books of the Bible with their chapters. I mark off each chapter as I read.
This system gives me greater flexibility than a schedule does, yet still helps me to reach my reading goals. This year I plan on reading the New Testament (probably twice), as well as reading the Old Testament historical and wisdom books (Genesis through Song of Solomon). One advantage of this system over using a schedule is that I can vary my pace.
Feel free to download and print this for yourself and pass it on to others:
My hope and prayer is to encourage you to be in the Word in 2010, and that you would know our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ better because of it.
Grace and Peace
