As we like to share each year around this time, Scripture reading—a steady intake of God’s Word—is pivotal to the stability and growth of every Christian. Reading the Bible according to a defined schedule is an option that helps many people. Like the physical necessities of our lives, spiritual needs require a proactive plan. As John Piper has said, “Nothing but the simplest impulses gets accomplished without some forethought which we call a plan.”
We cannot improve upon the excellent post Justin Taylor has put together—Reading the Bible in 2013. It includes links to a variety of plans including ones specific to ESV, links to books to have on hand as “helps,” and a chart to track where you are in the biblical storyline.
Check out Justin’s post, pick an approach that’s right for you, and enjoy God’s Word this year!
