New Year’s Bible Reading Schedule
by Stan Paregien Sr.
Happy New Year to each of you.
And what better way to begin the New Year than by a systematic method of reading the Bible? So I have attached a schedule that I am following this year. It allows you to read through the entire Bible, Old and New Testaments, in one year. And this schedule places the events of the Bible in chronological order (at least as far as modern scholarship can determine).
Then, to make it even more interesting, I’m going to be doing this devotional reading (as opposed to reading in order to prepare for a Bible class or sermon) by reading through one of the newest Bible translations, THE MESSAGE by Eugene H. Peterson. Of course, it is always a good idea to pray before each reading and ask the Lord to bless you with greater understanding of the Bible and more wisdom as to how to apply the message.
I invite you to join me in this year-long reading through the Word of God.
