7 Keys to Guilt-Free Bible Reading

Well it’s that time of year again, where most of us are barely waking out of our holiday food comas and begin to think about the new year that has dawned upon us. For many they begin by setting out that goal they wish to accomplish during the New Year. I’m normally one who doesn’t really go in for things like that, (not that I have anything against New Year’s resolutions) it’s just not my style. However, some years ago a friend recommended that I start out the New Year by doing a “through the Bible in a year” reading plan. At the time I was a new Christian and to be honest the thought of reading the whole Bible in a year felt a bit overwhelming, but I was up for the challenge. I made the commitment, and come December 31st I had made the journey from Genesis to Revelation. I can still remember the feeling of turning that last page, I had actually done it and I had learned so much along the way! I now had a better understanding of the Word of God and because of it my relationship with Christ grew deeper and deeper.

It’s 2015, a new year, a new opportunity to make a decision to start the year out right by spending each day with God and making the trip from Genesis to Revelations, and you know what the best part about it is? You are guaranteed to have a great time along the way!

Here are a few tips that can help you out in both picking a reading plan and keeping on track throughout the year:


Whatever way you choose to do things, whether this year or the next, whether it’s 
your first time or your tenth time doing it, you will always come away from the experience changed. The time you invest in reading the Word of God is time well spent. The more we read, the better we understand who God is, what He has done for us, and as the knowledge sinks in it begins to change everything about us.
