Why read through the Bible
The Bible is the most accessible and tangible way God speaks to us today. God uses the entire Bible to save us, break us, heal us, build us, encourage us, teach us, guide us, protect us, satisfy us, bless us, change us, and reveal Himself to us. The Bible itself says it is living and active, written by the very breath of God, all of it. And this incredible source of God's grace is ready to break into our lives today. We just have to open it and read it with a sincere heart.
For this reason, we are doing a church-wide Bible reading campaign to read through the entire Bible together. We encourage everyone to join us on this journey of no regrets. Time in the Bible is always time invested very well.
How to read through the Bible
A CHAPTER A DAY
One of the best ways to read through the Bible is to use a reading plan. There are plenty to choose from, but the one we're using is "A Chapter A Day" created by Celebration Church. This is a three year reading plan that takes you through the entire Bible in sequential order, one chapter at a time. In any given week, you will read from both Old and New Testaments to break up the monotony and keep things fresh. Get started by getting the App on your phone, or downloading the PDF below.
JOURNAL WHAT YOU READ
In addition to reading through the Bible, we encourage everyone to journal what you read. SOAP journaling is a simple way to reflect, record, and apply what God is saying to you. Reading the Bible daily and SOAP journaling three times a week is a powerful way to "eat" the Scriptures. For instructions on how to SOAP journal go here.
