Saddleback Church is beginning 40 Days in The Word at the end of January. If you are able to participate in this I highly recommend you do. In any case your Scripture reading plan is important. I have a suggestion – try this.
Start at the beginning (Genesis.) Read to the end (Revelation.)
Read one-half hour per day and you will complete your work in 160 days. Then you should begin again. Or if you are able, take a two week vacation and finish in 80 hours. If this is your first time through, just read. Do not take notes or puzzle too much over the meanings of words. Do not allow yourself to get side tracked. Bathe your work in prayer. This is the most important work you have. Out of this fundamental effort will come everything else. As we read the Scripture we see Jesus. Jesus is LIFE! YOUR LIFE and mine.
