Plan 5 - Bible Reading Plan of reading the 4 Gospels in 45 days.

This 45 Day Bible Reading plan focuses on the record of the life of Christ. You'll read through all four gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in 15 to 20 minutes a day in 45 days.

Now, there is another way. The Bible Reading Plan for New Christians takes into account the great number of people who do not have a strong background in the word of God. Or if you are like me, might not enjoy reading as much as some do or you are not a strong reader especially doing long sections. This plan gives you a stepping-stone so that you read straight through every word of the 4 Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John) for the first time in 45 days.  After you feel comfortable and have a Bible reading routine at this level, then you can go on to bigger proportions of the Bible.

If you miss a day, we recommend you do that day next. Quality is better than quantity. It is better to receive from God’s Word and take a few extra days to finish the reading plan. It is not a race. Start your day by talking to God, reading the Bible and reflecting on your day. You may need to set aside a quiet space, and a few moments, but it’s a small step that will leap your forward in your faith.

New Christians - Shorter Bible Reading 90 Day Plans 6-8.

Plan 6 - Bible Reading Plan of reading the New Testament in 90 days.

A Plan To Read The New Testament in 90 days. It’s a Challenge well worth taking from Matthew to Revelation!

The New Testament has 260 chapters, so if you read an average of three chapters of it a day, you can easily finish it within three months, even if you miss a few days.  The suggested reading schedule below can be a helpful tool to help you to reach your goal of reading the entire New Testament in 90 days.  If you miss a day or don’t finish the number of chapters that you planned for a particular day, don’t get discouraged.  Just keep going!  It may take you a little longer than 90 days, but it will be better for you to finish a little later than you planned than not to finish at all.  May God bless you as you read His word and apply it to your life!

Tips on Reading the Bible Daily
Start reading the Bible today -- there is no better time. Set aside a specific time each day. Set your schedule and then stick to it. Mornings are great, but feel free to use any time that works consistently for you.

Read the Bible for the sake of learning, not simply to accomplish your next reading. Say a short prayer to God before you begin, asking the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom and understanding, then be refreshed by the words you read!

Most Christians know they should read God’s word. They understand that it is God’s message to them and He expects them to read it. However, for various reasons, many Christians find this duty a daunting task. It is a mountain they fear they cannot climb. The Bible seems so big. They do not understand how it is organized. The vocabulary and grammar are challenging. Many Christians just give up and never read the Bible—or at least never read it through.

This Bible Reading Plan is designed for those that enjoy reading and are strong readers.

Plan 10 Bible Reading 170 days Plan for Beginners

The Bible Reading Plan for Beginners is a plan for reading about 40% of the Bible in 170 days (about six months). In this plan, you will read much of the Old Testament story, every chapter in  Psalms and Proverbs, the two gospels of Mark and John and several of the New Testament epistles (including Romans, Philippians, Titus and others).  You will not read the details of the ceremonial law, lengthy genealogies or difficult prophecies.  Instead of 1,189 chapters (the entire Bible), you will read 513 chapters.

Just to be clear all chapters are an important part of the Bible.  But some portions are better for beginners to read.  Then, you can go to a plan that includes the entire Bible.  At that point, much of it will be familiar to you and the rest will make more sense.

4 - Blended Bible Reading One Year Plans - Plans 13 to 16.

What it is: Blended Bible reading plans will help you read through the entire Bible in a year, but are arranged so that your readings are from the Old Testament and New Testament are intertwined.
Pros: Having readings from different books keeps you from getting bogged down in books like Leviticus and can help make sure that there is a successful reading that resonates and has variety with you every day.

This Blended Bible Reading Plan takes into account the great number of people who are new to the Bible or do not have a strong background in the word of God. Or if you are like me, might not enjoy reading as much as some do and to be successful need variety in your daily reading guide. If that is you we highly recommend a Blended reading Plan.

We have four Blended Reading Plans to choose from. Find the one that will make your Bible reading successful.

Bible Reading Plan #13 Blended - (3 Books of Bible each day for one year)
This plan is a Monthly chart. Example:
Jan 1 Reading Genesis 1-2; Psalms 1-2; Matthew 1-2
Jan 2 Reading Genesis 3-4; Psalms 3-5; Matthew 3-4

What it is: Blended Bible reading plans will help you read through the entire Bible in a year, but are arranged so that your readings are from the Old Testament and New Testament are intertwined. Because each individual is different we have 4 different Blended Plans to choose from Plan 13, 14, 15 & 16.

Day 2 - Genesis 3-4; Ephesians 2
Day 3 - Genesis 5-6; Psalms 12; Ephesians 3
Day 4 - Genesis 7-8; Ephesians 4

The Blended Plan divides the Bible so that the reader will read books in a nontraditional sequence. For example, while one is reading the book of Ephesians, also you are reading the book of Genesis and the Psalms. We highly recommend the Blended plan for reading the complete Bible in one year. Because each individual is different we have 4 different Blended Plans to choose from. Our only motive is whichever plan you choose, you will be successful in reading God’s Word.

Or if you are like me, might not enjoy reading as much as some do and to be successful need variety in your daily reading guide. If that is you we highly recommend Plan #17. Example:
Week 1 -  (1/1-1/7) Genesis 1:1-18:19, Matthew 1:1-6:24, Psalms 1:1-7:17, Proverbs 1:1-2:5
Week 2 - (1/8-1/14) Genesis 18:20-31:16, Matthew 6:25-10:26, Psalms 8:1-12:8, Proverbs 2:6-3:15
Week 3 -  (1/15-1/21) Genesis 31:17-43:34, Matthew 10:27-14:13, Psalms 13:1-18:34, Proverbs 3:16-4:10

Bible Reading Plan - Its Importance
A Bible reading plan is critical to your development as a Christian. It may not always seem like it in this time-pressured world we live in, but spending time with God and reading His Word is the most important part of your day. If you want to know God's will for your life, the Bible is one of the primary ways God speaks to us. That's why the Bible is often called "God's Word" or "The Word of God." Because God created the world and everything in it, reading the Bible is the best way to learn about ourselves and the world around us. The Bible is our complete source of truth. There are numerous books written about the Bible, but none can take the place of the Bible itself. 

New believers, as well as those who have been Christians for many years, cannot spend too much time reading the Bible. But for targeted growth, it's important to find a plan that works well for you. Once you've identified that plan, you need to be faithful to follow it.

Having a Bible reading plan is important because God's Word is seed for your growth, as well as for your personal evaluation and discernment. Hebrews 4:12 says, "For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."

Short Term Commitments - Plans 29 - 41 - Two Week Reading Plans

Introduction to the Bible. This is a place to begin reading the Bible. These two-week reading plans take you quickly into passages every Christian should know. New believers, as well as those who have been Christians for many years, cannot spend too much time reading the Bible. But for targeted growth, it's important to find a plan that works well for you. Once you've identified that plan, you need to be faithful to follow it.

Of all the reasons people mention for not reading the Bible, simple discouragement ranks highest. The Bible’s length alone is imposing; it is more like a self-contained library than a book. It includes sixty-six different books, by several dozen authors; it’s little wonder why people get confused and discouraged. These reading plans help break the Bible into more manageable portions. This is a place to begin reading the Bible. With 1189 chapters in the Bible, why begin with these? First, they are frequently quoted or referenced elsewhere. Second, they are relatively easy to read and understand.

10 CREATIVE BIBLE READING METHODS

1. Choose a Bible version that’s understandable and easy to read.
Here’s the flat out truth: If we don’t understand it, we won’t read it. 
The Bible was originally written in Hebrew and Greek. One of the earliest translations to English was the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible, but today we have a variety of versions to choose from. Some translations focus on being more precise and are best for Bible study, while others focus on readability and are great for devotions. 

If you’re a beginner, I recommend the New International Version (NIV) Bible. Myself I use the New International Version Devotional Bible (NIV Devotional Bible) or for more a mature Christian the NIV study Bible.  Most Pastor use the NIV Bible. To purchase a Bible over the internet we recommend Christian Book. Com here.
Some of the other popular, easier-to-read translations include: New American Standard (NAS), New Living Translation (NLT), English Standard Version (ESV), New King James Version (NKJV).
You can also download a Bible app like YouVersion here or read the Bible at Biblegateway online in several languages from around the world. This makes it possible for you to choose the best Bible version for you. These are great tools for beginners and veterans alike.

2. Find a quiet place where you can be alone with God.
A quiet "time" is important too. The fewer distractions, the better. Some of you may have such busy lives that you need to fit it in whenever you can. This is totally normal! Make sure that whatever time you decide to read your Bible that you are in a place where you can focus and reflect on God’s Word. If you miss some days, do not try to catch up. Simply pick up where you left off.

3. You don’t have to start at the beginning.
The Bible contains 66 separate books compiled into one book. The 39 books of the Old Testament are the story of God and his people before the coming of the Jesus.

The 27 books of the New Testament pick up the story beginning with the birth of Jesus. If you’re new to the Bible, the best place to start is the Gospel of John. This book (the fourth book in the New Testament) is John’s eyewitness account of the life of Jesus. As one of Jesus’ closest disciples, John’s account is both riveting and informative. 

We highly recommend our Bible Reading Plans here designed to fit individual needs from 21 days to one year plans to be successful for those with busy schedules.

Plan 1 Beginners Bible Reading Plan – Gospel of John - 21 days 5 minutes a day here.

Plan 2. New Christians Reading Plan - Gospel of John – 21 days 15  to 20 minutes a day more information here or sign up here for 21 guides sent once a day by email for 21 days here.

John’s purpose in writing is to help us believe, making it the ideal place to start. “These things were written to help you believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name”(John 20:31). 

4. Pick a book of the Bible and work your way through it.
If you’re anything like me, you need a Bible reading plan or you’ll waste precious minutes thumbing through the Bible, never quite landing. So pick one book of the Bible and read a little each day, one chapter, perhaps. 

For example if you read one chapter of Gospel of John a day, (which will take no more than 5-10 minutes) you’ll read John in its entirety in 21 days. Check out our two reading plans on Gospel of John #1 and #2 at our Bible Reading Plans here.

After reading Gospel of John, move on to the other gospels –
Matthew, Mark or Luke. Next read Philippians, Ephesians and Colossians, which provide practical encouragement and instruction for living the Christian life.

Next Romans is jam-packed with essential doctrine. Genesis explains how everything began. Psalms is filled with heartfelt prayers that offer encouragement for every season of life.

Work your way through one book at a time, and you’ll never find yourself fumbling for where to read again. 

IMPORTANT: We have a Bible Reading Plan for everyone here.
From 21, 31, 45, and 90 days long and many one year plans. Each plan is designed for the individual and your spiritual success in reading God’s Word (The Bible).

5. Begin your time with prayer.
Pause before you open your Bible and ask God to speak to you. Remember, the Bible is God’s Word; it is God’s love letter written to His people, which includes you.

Ask God to help you understand His Word. Ask God to use His Word to teach you, to direct you and even to re-direct you, when necessary. Ask Him to use His Word to help you know Him and love Him. 

Jeremiah 29:13 says, “You will seek me and find Me, if you seek Me with all your heart.”God loves to reveal himself to those who seek Him.

6. Read a little every day.
Read Scripture, think about it, pray about it, and take notes on what you learn. Then review and read more. You'll be amazed how God will speak to you through His Word.

Getting God’s Word into your life doesn’t have to take long. Start small—five or 10 minutes is better than none. Sometimes less is more, especially when reading less means you’ll actually remember more.

Chose a time and place that’s convenient for you. Many people read their Bible first thing in the morning, choosing to spend time with God before daily distractions get in the way. But if mornings are not your thing, don’t sweat it. 

That 
you read God’s Word is more important than when you read God’s Word.

7. Write it down.
As you read the Bible ask two questions:
What does this teach me about God?
What does this teach me about how I should live?

No doubt, as you read you’ll find one or two verses that seem to leap off the page. Maybe they speak to an issue you’ve been grappling with; maybe they answer a long held question; maybe they give you comfort or encouragement; maybe they provide an example to follow or avoid. 

When a verse resonates with you, stop and write it down, word for word. Pause to let the message sink in because these words are God’s words to you. This practice has cemented God’s Word into my thoughts in countless ways.

Sometimes I keep the verse with me throughout the day when I am walking, driving, cooking...  Sometimes I ask God to help me remember it when I need it. Sometimes I memorize it. Be intentional about getting God’s Word into your thoughts and you’ll soon see your relationship with God thrive and your life change.

Stay focused on what God is saying through his Word that intersects with your everyday life. This is not about speculation, private interpretations or manipulating God’s Word to say what you want it to say. This is about bringing Christ to your everyday life based on the truth of God’s Word rightly interpreted.

The more you expose yourself to the Bible, the more it will expose itself to you!  

The Bible was never meant to merely inform us; the Bible was meant to transform us.

8. Have a simple plan of action for how to study the Bible & where to begin.

A simple Bible study method using the acronym S.O.A.P. is very easy to remember and follow to give you a start! It can be used with any daily Bible reading plan.
S.O.A.P.
S
for Scripture
Open your Bible to today’s reading (according to whatever plan you are following here). Take time reading and allow God to speak to you. When you are done, look for a verse that particularly spoke to you that day, and write it in your journal.
O for Observation
What struck you and caught your attention in what you read?
What do you think God is saying to you in this scripture?
Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you and reveal Jesus to you. Paraphrase and write this scripture down in your own words.
A for Application
Personalize what you have read, by asking yourself how it applies to your life right now. Perhaps it is instruction, encouragement, revelation of a new promise, or corrections for a particular area of your life. Write how this scripture can apply to you today.
P for Prayer
This can be as simple as asking God to help you use this scripture, or it may be a greater insight on what He may be revealing to you. Remember, prayer is a two way conversation, so be sure to listen to what God has to say! Now, write it out.
