2014 Suggested Bible Reading Plan

Print Friendly

The best way you can develop a God-honoring financial plan is by reading your Bible.  This is a much better approach than simply searching for the word ‘money’ in your favorite commentary.  Indeed, the benefit of reading your Bible daily goes beyond simply learning about finances.

For the last few years, I’ve experimented with different Bible reading plans.  While my 2013 plan wasn’t prefect, it worked much better than plans in the past.  Rather than simply reading through the Bible in an entire year, I read through the Old Testament once and the New Testament twice.  The advantage of this approach is that every day of the year you’re reading a New Testament text. The disadvantage is that you’ll be reading more than if you just read through the Bible in a year.

I’ve always found the best time to read the Bible is first thing in the morning.  As a creature of habit, I’ve decided to do my readings at the same time every morning.  I’ve found that when I have pushed it off to a later time in the day, it ultimately doesn’t happen.  Creating that habit is the key.

This year, I’m planning to read through the Bible thematically.  Bible-literacy.org has a year long Bible reading plan that divides daily readings by topics.  The main concern that I have is that the full year long reading plan hasn’t been posted online.  I just hope that they (1) complete the reading plan, and (2) don’t decide to charge a fee mid-year.  I’ll start reading by faith.

In addition to the Bible reading plan, I usually try and read through portions of a devotional book.  This year, I’ll be reading Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. Last year, I slowly read through The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer. 

What approach are you taking to your daily Bible reading in 2014?  Any suggestions?

    I just got one which is the OT once and the NT twice which should be free. I use it through the Olive Tree Bible app on iPad (it works in the Android systems as well).

    I think the app is free, and a couple versions come free with the app (ESV, KJV I think). Right now, they are selling the NASB for $5 (usually $15) and it is the best Bible app I have seen as of yet (of course, you can get almost any version out there…some of real cheap, others are kind of pricey). Even lets you hyperlink other verses within the notes section of any notes you want to take.

    Anyway, there is a Bible reading plan available in the application. You can sign up and it automatically takes you to the next verse and tracks your progress. The plan is free. You have to search OT and NT Twice, but I think it is by The Rock.

    Summary: for free, you should be able to download the app, and read the reading plan through the ESV without having to purchase anything. And the app is beautiful. easy to use and the capabilities are significantly above other free Bible apps I have tried.

      Continuation of my comments, Let us deifne what is theory in this case. The definition that we may apply for this is not the kind of definition as the theory of relativity, but a formulation assumed to be true but base on certain principles not completely verified,abstract reasoning or speculation and assumption or guess based on some evidence written in the scripture but need to be clarified according to the right way of interpreting it.let me explain how I assists that this theory is nonsense, because of the following truth of the matter. All of us we must consider that God hath made everything beautiful in his time Ecclesiastes 3:11. Genesis Chapter 1:2 is a description of what was created in verse 1 the whole entire universe and the following verses is the chronological order of creation from first day until the six days, and the word DAY in Hebrew word is Yom meaning 24 hours not ages. The supporting books and verses like Isaiah 14:12 to 17 cannot be because there is no nations that exist during that time and the other reference of Psalms 104:29&30 the context is all about the human being according to verse 23 of the same chapter and besides in verse five ( 5 ), it says that the foundation of the earth should not be removed for ever and ever.

    We all know the importance of the word of God to our daily lives, for this year apart from the bible i plan to use the rhapsody of realities to ensure that my fellowship with God is continuous.

    Like you, my devotions are in the morning; it works best for me. Now, if I could just get an exercise schedule to follow -smile-. Having tried various Bible reading plans, I always revert to the same old, same old…5 chapters every morning and Spurgeon or other devotional. For more than 6 decades I’ve watched Daddy and Mom read their Bibles, every day, and Daddy reads 5 chapters a day while Mom uses various studies.
    For me, the Bible reading plan isn’t nearly as important as actually reading the Bible.

On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword .wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at.

      My wife and I have been very blessed in our lives. We have also lived thrgouh very tight times ( I. E., blood donations.) We have always felt the love if others. Many times, we picked up the bill for another at a resturant. Other times we paid for another’s groceries. Another time we put together a baby shower for a lady we never met who left an abusive home. Instead of money, we gave a man in the rain a sleeping bag, a coat, and accessories along with a gift card for a meal at Denny’s. When my wife ad I ran into financial issues, we were blessed by people who remained anonymous with a $500 gift card twice. We always asked why. We had a very hard time accepting. Why us? LovePay it forward It will come back when needed

      You are correct of corsue but this test is for all the people who think they will make it into Heaven on a scale of goodness . టెస్ట్ తన ప్రామాణిక ప్రకారం హెవెన్ పొందడానికి గాడ్స్ దృష్టిలో తగినంత మంచి గా ఒక వ్యక్తి అర్హత ఏ వివరిస్తుంది. మీరు ఆలోచనలు సరైన ఉండాలి, సున్నా లోపాలు ఉన్న జననం నుండి మరణం వరకు వాక్కులు మరియు కార్యాలు. It is an impossible standard to meet on a scale of goodness and that is the whole point. యేసు లేకుండా, ఏ మానవ అన్ని వద్ద మోక్షానికి NO HOPE ఉంది.
