If you are looking for community and interaction check out pastor Chris Aiken’s blog. He blogs daily from one chapter of Scripture and a Proverb. Its a great place to read along, gather insights, and share thoughts. I have been following along for nearly a year now and have been greatly blessed.
For study and prayer purposes I have found the free and easy to use E-sword program to be an invaluable aid. It is a Bible study software program that you can download to your computer. You can also down load a variety of translations, commentaries, devotions and other Christian works. (All free, easy to use, and adaptable).
The image above is a picture of the MacArthur Daily Bible that I have used for the past several years. It contains selections from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs each day. It also contains a brief devotional and explanatory comments about the scripture passages you are reading.
There are several other plans to read through the Bible, but rather than repeating a bunch of information I have listed a link to a few great resources on reading the Bible through.
ewordtoday.com – I recommend the ESV Chronological or Historical track
doxologypress.org – this is a great place to hear the audio Bible and keep track of your reading/listening. (though you need to sign up for an account) It’s also a great place to hear great works of literature like John Owen’s Mortification of Sin (though I admit it’s not for the faint of heart).
If you are new to reading the Bible or haven’t had much sucess in being consistent. I highly reccomend Pastor Chris’ Blog above the other resources. It is simple interactive plan that can be easily maintained by most anybody. I hope all goes well with your adventure in journeying deeper into God’s Word this year. Here are a few more articles that you might find useful.
