2021 Bible Reading Plan

2021 is just a few days away. I want all of us to experience more of the transforming power of God in Christ through reading the entire Bible in 2021. The psalmist tells us that God’s word is a lamp to our feet and a light on our path. Who doesn’t need a little more traveling light after the 2020 we’ve had?

I have used this reading plan for the past several years. I like it because we will read a little bit of the Old Testament, a little bit of the New Testament, a portion of the Psalms and Proverbs every day. I prefer this plan to a straight chronological reading of Scripture so that it doesn’t feel like I’m bogged down in some of the less applicable, yet divinely inspired, portions of the Old Testament (like the architectural details of the Temple). There is about 15-20 minutes of reading every day, so it takes some commitment. But the benefits to daily Bible reading cannot be overstated.

My hope for CFBC is that groups will spring up to discuss the readings and the way participants are applying what they learn in their everyday lives. Even if you’re not a member of CFBC, you can form a group at your church, school or workplace. I look forward hearing about God uses His word to transform your life in 2021.
