  • 5 X 5 X 5 Bible Reading Plan — Read through the New Testament in 5 days a week, 5 minutes a day
    5 minutes a day:  If you’re not currently reading the Bible, start with 5 minutes a day. This reading plan will take you through all 260 chapters of the New Testament, one chapter per day. The gospels are read throughout the year to keep the story of Jesus fresh all year.
    5 days a week:  Determine a time and location to spend 5 minutes a day for 5 days a week. It is best to have a consistent time and a quiet place where you can regularly meet with the Lord.
    5 ways to dig deeper:  We must pause in our reading to dig into the Bible.  Below are 5 different ways to dig deeper each day. These exercises will encourage meditation.  We recommend trying a single idea for a week to find what works best for you.  Remember to keep a pen and paper ready to capture God’s insights.
  • Book-at-a-Time Bible Reading Plan
    The book-at-a-time Bible reading plan provides two readings for each day.
    The first reading alternates between Old and New Testament books, giving you three or four chapters a day. The Gospels are spread throughout the year.
    The second reading takes you through a chapter or so of the wisdom literature and Isaiah. Combined, these readings will take you through the entire Bible in one year.
    To prevent the frustration of falling behind and to provide some reflection time, each month consists of only 25 readings. You’ll have several days each month to meditate more deeply on something that was significant to you in the past week, to catch up on missed readings, or to revisit favorite passages.
