2019 Bible Reading plan

Endeavor to read the Bible together. 

 

2019 Bible Reading Plan

     To join the group and be part of group accountability, email Gabe Molnar / moln4905@gmail.com.

 

Why

The Bible tells us that all Scripture, every word, is worthy of our attention during the year:


2 Timothy 3:16-17: “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 competent, equipped for every good work.”

Matthew 4:4: “But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Further, throughout the Scriptures, we are told that in them we have a light for our path (Psalm 119:105), answer to prayer (John 15:7), help to fight sin (Psalm 119:11), sanctification in truth (John 17:17), growth in faith (Romans 10:17), knowledge of Jesus (John 5:39-40), purity of way (Psalm 119:9), and many other amazing promises. It only makes sense then to make an effort to try to intentionally study all of it – that we would be equipped for every good work!



The Plan

We’ll use the ESV Study Bible Plan as our guide for the year ahead. This plan is based on a daily reading of four chapters, one from each of the following groups: Psalms & Wisdom Literature, Pentateuch & History of Israel, Chronicles & Prophets, and Gospels & Epistles. For those who are interested in a chronological (or other type of) plan, no worries! Just stick with it!



The Accountability

Gabe Molnar will keep in touch regularly with the group via email/text with encouragements, insights, and status updates. 



Other Details

  • For the technologically advanced, the ESV Study Bible Plan is available on the ESV App (download available to your tablet or phone) and it includes a snazzy daily tracking feature.
  • If this is your first time with a one-year reading plan, work early on to set a pattern for your reading. Having a pattern gives another subtle motivation to stick with it!
  • Don’t get discouraged! Catching up is easy to do – so don’t let any early off-day or a bad stretch get you down! Our adversary, the devil, would like nothing more than for you to get discouraged over your bible reading and try to condemn you about it! Don’t let him!
  • Make a new friend! If there is someone in the group you don’t know, this would be a great opportunity to reach out to them, introduce yourself, and provide some additional encouragement throughout the year for the reading plan!
