PLAN how you are going to read the Bible in 2010

One year ago today, I started this blog/website.  It has been quite a journey through the Bible, getting to know God more deeply through His Word.  I’m grateful for all the positive responses from readers, and I look forward to seeing more of God this year in my read through the Bible.  Here’s some encouragement from John Piper as we begin a new year (he wrote this January 1, 2009):

At Bethlehem we close prayer week with a focus on the value of reading and memorizing Scripture in the new year.

Justin Taylor has pulled together a list of possible ways to read the Bible in this new year.

I encourage all of us to take the first day of the year and plan how we are going to read the Bible. Don’t leave it to chance.

Update : I am going with the Discipleship Journal Plan for one main reason. Few things discourage us more from reading the Bible through in a year than falling behind. This plan gives five catch up days every month. This is absolutely golden! I just printed it out at 9 AM New Year’s Day.
