Archives For Bible reading

I sat down and read the book Deuteronomy while waiting for, and while on board, a flight to Memphis this week. This project of reading whole books in one sitting gets easier and more exciting every time I do it. It makes me wonder why I haven’t read every book this way. So let’s talk about Deuteronomy because there is some great stuff in this book!

As most of you probably know, my 2018 Bible reading plan calls for me to read each book of the Bible in one sitting. You can find my thoughts on Genesis and Exodus in previous posts. This week I would like to share with you some of the thoughts I had when I sat down and read the book of Leviticus. Most Christians seem to hate this book. I will admit, it was never my favorite either, but I think that’s because I was looking at it all wrong.

I just finished the book of Exodus, as part of my 2018 reading plan and I wanted to share with you my most important takeaway. There are certainly a lot of things which could be said about this book and there were several things I noticed this time I had not noticed before, but I consider this to be the most important.

As I read through Genesis, as part of my 2018 reading plan, I tried to assume I didn’t know how the grand narrative of the Bible would end. I tried to carry as few biases and preconceived notions with me as possible. Though it’s important to attempt to do just that, I’m not sure any of us can truly do that. Regardless, here are seven things I observed as I read:

90 Day Challenge

Wes  —  September 14, 2011

Starting tomorrow (September 15, 2011) I am going to challenge myself to go through the entire Bible in 90 days. I read a couple of very challenging posts by J. Randal Matheny (who is planning to read through the Old Testament in the next 90 days) that inspired me to do this!

Read through the Bible in 90 Days

Here is the 90 day Bible reading plan I will be using. I plan to read the first Old Testament reading when I get up in the morning. Then I will read the second reading sometime during the day when I have the opportunity. The New Testament portion I will listen to on audio while I am driving to and from work.

Now that you know my plan, I want to encourage you to do two things:

1. Consider taking this 90 day challenge yourself. Consider going through the entire Bible, the Old Testament, or even just the New Testament in the next 90 days. What do you have to lose? What significant thing did you accomplish in the last 90 days? Was it as significant as going through every Word in the Bible? You can do it! Just make your mind up and do it!

2. I want you to hold me accountable. It will be such an encouragement, and I will be a lot less likely to quit, if I know you will hold me accountable. Why not do it with me and then we can hold each other accountable?

I will keep you up to date periodically on how the reading is going throughout the 90 days. Who knows, I may get so excited that I’ll finish in less than 90 days!

I love you and God loves you! Have a wonderful day!
