Bible-Reading Plan Download

22 Aug

In today’s sermon, I noted the importance of constantly reminding ourselves of how holy and righteous God is.  It is only when we do this  that we see ourselves as we truly are – namely, sinful and in need of God’s grace.

Remember, repentance and faith is not simply a one-time deal that we just do at the beginning of our Christian lives, but rather, is an “attitude of the heart that continues throughout our lives as Christians” (Wayne Grudem, Bible Doctrine, p. 313).

And so, one of the ways in which we remind ourselves of God’s holiness is through daily immersing ourselves in Scripture.  For the last eight months, I’ve been using this Bible-reading plan that was recommended by John Piper of Bethlehem Baptist Church.

By God’s grace, reading through the Bible using this reading plan has been the single most helpful thing for me in growing my relationship with God.  Also helpful has been asking these four questions along with the Bible-reading.

For all of us who are starting school this week (and even if you’re not), let’s start tomorrow by humbly asking God to grant us repentance (and faith) as we encounter Him in His Word.
