the word dwelling in you in 2007

Happy New Year! Each January, many people set the goal of reading through the Bible in a year. If done out of a hunger for God rather than for legalistic achievement, this can be a tremendous way to "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly..." (Colossians 3:16). Here are some reading plans that you might find helpful if you intend to pursue this goal. These listed move from less demanding to more demanding.

5x5x5 Bible Reading Plan
5 minutes per day, 5 days per week, 5 ways to dig deeper. Takes you through one chapter each day. Read the New Testament in one year.

Book-at-a-Time Bible Reading Plan (*This is the one I'm doing)
Intersperses Old and New Testament books in each month's readings, with the four gospels spread throughout the year. Read the complete Bible in one year.

The Discipleship Journal® Bible Reading Plan
Read four places in God's Word every day to better grasp the unity of the Scriptures. Read the complete Bible in one year.

M'Cheyne Bible Reading Plan
Developed by a 19th-century Scottish pastor, this plan will help you read through the Old Testament once, and the New Testament twice.

Finally, let me encourage you to pray each day for God to move around the world by following Operation World's "Pray Today" page.

    As Luke mentioned, reading the entire Bible in one year can be a demanding, but rewarding goal. I think that it would be significantly more attainable with prayer and support from others who are reading the same chapters at the same time.

    Is anyone interested in an email accountability/support group to encourage one another in following the "Book-at-a-Time Bible Reading Plan"? If so, please email Luke and we can assemble email addresses of anyone interested.
