Happy New Year! I have seen countless articles leading into today about various New Year’s resolutions and how to keep them. Maybe you have a resolution and maybe you don’t. But I would encourage you think about how you can intentionally and purposefully read your Bible this year. David Mathis posted a good article, Bible Reading is an Art, at Desiring God yesterday that I would encourage you to look at.

Where to begin? There are numerous Bible reading plans out there, and even daily Bibles, designed to help guide you in reading. There is a helpful list available at the ESV website. By far my favorite is the Chronological Reading Plan from Back to the Bible. I have printed this on a 3×5, laminated, and I keep it in my Bible. Whatever you do I pray that you would be resolved to stay in the Word this year and that you will thoughtfully plan through what this will look like.
