Reading the Bible in a Year

The Scriptures

The Scriptures

Reading the Bible within a year is very often encouraged within Christian circles, but unfortunately, many begin such a regimen and later stop because they cannot seem to devote such time to reading the Bible (which is not the priority of many modern Christians). There is a great benefit to reading the Bible in a year as well as a Biblical reason to do so. In Psalm 119:11, is says, “I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” (ESV) If we are to store up God’s Word in our heart, we ought to do so by devoting more than simply a chapter or two a day in His Word, rather we should spend a significant amount of time reading His Word and even using commentaries and other books which help explain the Scriptures we read (ex. John Calvin’s Commentaries or Matthew Henry’s commentaries).

I have done this once before (I am currently working on a different regimen), and I can thoroughly say that I enjoyed it and was blessed by it.

Here is a regimen that you could consider.
