For those of you who feel led to read your Bible on a consistent basis this coming year, there are many helpful programs out there to guide you. Some plans are laid out to help you get through the Bible in one year, others, like the Robert Murray M’Cheyne program, will get you through in one or two years depending on the track you choose.
Ligonier Ministries has published online an excellent compilation of many various programs with PDF file downloads, websites, and apps all accessible at the click of a mouse. Click here to go to their page Bible Reading Plans for 2015.
There are few greater blessings than consistent Bible reading.
Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers. (Psalm 1:1-3)
My life is one of contradictions. I’m a southern boy living in northern New England; a boring guy married to super-fun girl; a conservative pastor in a progressive Christian denomination; a changed man in need of change; a sinner loved by a holy and perfect God.
