Does reading your Bible seem like a challenge? Are you having a hard time understanding God’s Word? Here are some suggestions:

  1. Make sure you have a personal relationship with Christ. It isn’t enough to be religious, to go to church or to be a good person. Jesus said, “You must be born again” (John 3:3). If you aren’t sure about your salvation, please click here.
  2. Read from a Bible translation that will help you to understand. The Holman Christian Standard Bible, English Standard Version and New Living Translation are some of our favorite of the newer translations along with the King James Version.
  3. Pray before you read. Ask God to open your eyes and give you understanding.
  4. Become a student of the Bible – not just a casual reader. Look for ways to increase your ability to learn and to retain what you are reading. Some ideas may be taking notes, journaling, attending small group Bible studies at your church or talking with a friend about what you’re reading.
  5. Set a regular time and place to read God’s Word each day. Make it a habit. Most people can establish a new habit in 21 days. This one will reward you for the rest of your life and for all of eternity.

When you mouse over the Scriptures for each day you will see a pop-up with the first verses. If you click on the Scripture it will take you to biblia.com where you can read the entire passage. On a laptop or desktop you can choose what version. Functionality may be more limited on smart phones and tablets. The site also has many resources to help you study and learn the Bible. To access these you will need to create an account on their web site. There are also related apps you can choose to use for reading from biblia.com on your phone or tablet – Vyrso and Logos Bible app are two of those.

This Bible reading plan is based on a plan from New Hope Church in Hawaii. It is arranged into three passages to read each day:  one from the Old Testament, one from the New Testament and one from Psalms and Proverbs. In the course of a year you will read through the entire Bible and you will read Psalms and Proverbs and the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) twice. If you are new to this, try reading just the New Testament reading each day. If you miss a day start on today’s reading. Make up the reading you have missed later if you can. DON’T QUIT! This is so important! Make God’s Word your priority in 2017.
