God – the Creator and Sovereign of the universe – is not silent. He has spoken and continues to speak through His Word. For this reason, reading Scripture is of paramount importance for the people of God. As we start a New Year, this is a great time to choose a Bible reading plan, be resolved and start reading!
My friend Nathan W. Bingham (Internet Outreach Manager at Ligonier Ministries) has compiled a helpful list of 14 different Bible reading plans for 2015. I commend this helpful compilation to you.
As we read through the Scriptures, let us strive to apply the following: Firstly, Desire the Word (Psalm 42:1; 119:131). Secondly Read the Word (1 Timothy 4:13; Rev. 1:3). Thirdly Meditate on the Word (Joshua 1:8) in the fourth place, Memorize the Word (Psalm 119:11) and Finally, take the time to Obey the Word (John 14:15).
There are many ways and approaches to reading the Bible, but the most important thing is to read and apply what you read.
Happy reading for 2015!
