Our Bible Reading Plan


Posted by Matt Postiff August 14, 2009 on Matt Postiff's Blog under GeneralĀ 

At Fellowship Bible Church, we have been systematically reading through the New Testament. We are on our third time through, just now in the middle of Romans. It has been a great help to many of our people, and I wanted to take the opportunity here to encourage you to work through some systematic Bible reading plan.

Our approach is simple: read three chapters each day. This will get you through the 260 chapters of the New Testament in three months--and even give you a day or two off! We have a printed schedule for each month that allows us to check off each day as we complete the reading, but this is just a practical help. All you need to do is remember: 3 chapters, 3 months, repeat. This kind of reading allows you to go over the NT text repeatedly, four times in a year. Another practical benefit of reading several chapters in a row, day after day, is that you are able to better grasp the context than if you just read a chapter here or there.

We are also reading together portions of the Bible in our Sunday evening service. Our purpose is to be obedient to Paul's injunction to give attention to the public reading of Scripture (1 Timothy 4:13). Various men volunteer to do the reading, usually two or three chapters in each evening service. In the last year or so, we've been able to read this way through Ruth, Nehemiah, the first thirty of the Psalms, Acts, and Romans.

If you want Christian growth, read, re-read, and re-re-read the Bible!
