3 Reasons to Start a Daily Bible Reading Plan in 2015

by | Jan 6, 2015 | Bible, Featured

20141231_biblereadingplanThe dawn of 2015 is right around the corner, and many Christians are resolving to begin a new habit: to read their Bible daily. Blue Letter Bible wants to help you read the Bible this year! They have 6 daily reading plans for you to choose from. Here are three reasons you might want to sign up for one:

1. We need the Word!

There is no discipline more important than the regular reading of God’s Word. It is the means that God uses to build a healthy Christian (Heb 4:12, 2 Tim 3:16). The Scriptures tell us about God Himself—His work, His character, His attributes. It informs us about God’s Law and how badly we have fallen short of it. This turns us to the good news about Jesus Christ (also found in the pages of Scripture) and how this Messiah—the incarnation of God—lived the perfect life we could never live only to die the brutal death that we deserved to die, so that through His resurrection we might rise with Him if we repent and believe upon this gospel.

2. Reading plans help us read all of the Word.

There are many ways to read the Bible in a year. Some read canonically (from Genesis to Revelation), and others chronologically (in the historical order that Bible events occurred), and still others will do a mixed approach. Whichever the case, reading all of the Word is an important discipline for the Christian. Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” (Matt 4:4). If we are to live by every word that proceeds from His mouth, then surely He intends that we actually read or hear every word.

3. Reading plans help us build a daily routine in the Word.

We live in an exciting age. Now that the Bible can be accessed online through websites like Blue Letter Bible, Youversion, and others, anyone with internet access can read and study the Bible wherever they are. It has never been easier to access God’s Word. Yet, many of don’t take advantage of this blessing. We don’t read regularly or thoroughly. A reading plan will help provide accountability. If you have a free BLB account, we will even keep track of your progress for you!
