“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3.16-17
Personal bible reading is absolutely crucial in the Christian life, so we want to point out a few helpful resources on developing a healthy, bible saturated life. For personal Bible reading we suggest one of the following reading plans:
- Robert Murray M’Cheyne has a wonderful plan that you can move through at your own pace, reading anything from 1-4 chapters per day (if you read four chapters a day, it’ll take you through the New Testament and Psalms twice and the Old Testament once every year). And Crossway has made available both the First and Second Volume of D.A. Carson’s For the Love of God – a devotional that offers brief, one-page devotional thoughts on one of the M’Cheyne readings each day.
- A much more aggressive reading plan is Grant Horner’s Bible Reading System. While it can seem intimidating, once you get into it, it’s an amazing experience.
- Olive Tree has a number of great online resources and apps, complete with lots of Bible reading plans you can personalize.
