"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." - 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV
God expects us to study and learn His Word. In addition, studying the Word of God will draw you closer to God, while providing you with wisdom and understanding about life's circumstances. We have provided this reading plan to assist you with your study of the Word of God.
Monthly Reading Plan
Below is a reading plan that I have created so that you may read from the Word of God regarding certain topics. It is a three-day schedule of readings for Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. It is not a large amount of reading because I want you to meditate upon the various subjects. Let us remember the Scripture tells us that blessed is the one who meditates on his law both day and night. I believe this process of reading and meditating can bring about greater change in your life helping you to conform more to the image of Christ. I want to encourage you to take up this practice of developing the habit to read more of the Word of God. Please remember, it is not about how much you read; but about how much gets in your heart. A bee that extracts nectar from a few flowers gains more than one that travels to more flowers not extracting the nectar at all. Then, once you have tasted the honey of the Word of God, let others have a taste with you. The following are just a few ideas to help you in your reading. 1. Start reading the Bible today -- there is no better time, and there's no reason to wait. 2. Set aside a specific time for each day. Set your schedule and then stick to it. Mornings are great, but feel free to use any time that works consistently for you. 3. Read the Bible for the sake of learning, not simply to accomplish your next reading. Say a short prayer to God before you begin, asking the Holy Spirit to give you wisdom and understanding from your meditation, then be refreshed by the words you read!
