I have used the One Year Bible to read through the Bible twice back when I was much younger and just found a link to an article on the Palm Addicts site that has the reading list for reading the Bible in 90 days. I just loaded the reading list onto the HTC Advantage I am evaluating and plan to use the EXCELLENT PocketBible software to help me devote myself to these daily readings. I wish there was a PocketBible daily reader for this new 90 day plan.
The Read the Bible in 90 days site state that the amount you have to read per day is about 3.5 pages of The Wall Street Journal or 4 pages of USA Today. It is also pretty sad when you read the stats that show people read the Bible on average for 7 minutes a day and watch TV for 5 hours a day. I have been feeling a real need to get dedicated to Bible reading at church lately and am challenging myself to start this program. It really is exciting to think about all the wonderful words of God in the Bible and how it is accessible to all of us right now. Yet, too often we get caught up in the business of this world when we need to be studying for eternity.
While just reading through the Bible isn’t necessarily going to be the best way to dive into the Word and get into deep studies, it is very helpful to know what is in the Word, where it is, who the players are, and how you can apply it to your life. The Lord is pleased when we spend time in the Word and this seems like a great method that allows you to devote some time to prayer and reading the Word every day. If you start soon, you can go through the entire Bible in time to celebrate the birth of Christ this year. I am going to give the list to my daughters and challenge them to read along with me during their nightly reading time.
Any readers up for the challenge?
