A New Way to R.E.A.D. Your Bible

I’m reading the Bible in a year, along with many of my friends and family. We’re using www.YouVersion.com where you can choose different reading plans. I’m reading the Bible chronologically, something I’ve always wanted to do. Interesting that after reading about Noah and the Ark, you go straight to Job!

Pastor Brian Smith, Crouch Community Church, also suggested a way to respond as well as read the Bible, which I’ve found very helpful. First pray, then go to the day’s reading and READ:

Record a Promise
Enjoy the Person (God, Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit)
Admit a Practice (that offends God)
Discover a Precept (a command we are to do.

Try this with Matthew 8:16-20:
R–God is with me always (v. 20)
E–Jesus has all authority (v. 18)
A–Sin (v. 17 doubt)
D–We are to go into the world and share the Good News! (vv. 19-20)

I’d love to hear from any of you reading the Bible in a year and trying READ, or share what’s working for you!
Happy New Year,
