Christians find instruction, endurance, encouragement and hope through reading and meditating on Scripture (Romans 15:4). Many enjoy a regular diet of God’s Word through a daily reading plan enabling them to read the Bible in one year. Ninety-four percent of NAE members who answered the fall member poll said they have read the Bible in one year.
There are many online guides available for download from The Navigators, Bible Gateway, Crossway, Biblica, Ligonier Ministries, The Gospel Coalition, and others. YouVersion, the Bible app, also offers several reading plans for mobile devices.
The NAE’s Thru the Bible Reading Guide offers a list of daily Scripture readings in general chronological order with Psalms on Sunday. This handy pamphlet fits in even the smallest Bibles. The 2015 guides are available in packages of 50, 250 or 500. Order some for your church, stocking stuffers or Christmas cards.
