I've been wanting to reading through the Bible since I was saved in 2005. I start out strong and always fizzle out. Satan uses life challenges to hinder my walk with God...and I LET him. Today a challenge was made to me on an email group I belong to, the writer challenged us to read through the Bible in 4 months! WOW I thought...at first I said to myself....no way could I do that! But when I read further in the email I realized it was only 12 chapters per day. Four chapters 3 times a day OR Three chapters 4 times a day. That is so reachable. I read easily 12 chapters of other books everyday. WHY can't I do the same in the Bible? There is NO reason why I can't!
How much time do you spend watching TV? Could be reading the Bible!! How much time do you spend reading other types of books? Could be reading the Bible!! How much time do you spend surfing the internet, being on facebook, twitter, games ect? YOU could be reading the Bible. These are ALL things that have kept me away from being blessed by reading my Heavenly Father's words to me!!
So here is the schedule I'm planning on keeping....why not join me?
Genesis - 1 Chronicles 22
1 Chronicles 23 - Isaiah 54
Isaiah 55 - Galatians 3
Galatians 4 - Revelations 22
If you stick to this schedule you will finish well before the end of the year. While this might seem like a lot at first glance....remember....many books have 5 and less chapters.
How can we share it if we've never read it?!
