“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple…More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.” (Psalm 19:7,10).
I love the Bible. It is my favourite book in the world. Ever since I started following Jesus, I have set a goal for myself to read through the New Testament once a year, and the Old Testament once every two years. God’s Word has given me victory, freedom, peace, wisdom, joy, encouragement and strength.
Take up the 5 minute challenge! With this Bible reading schedule, by spending about five minutes a day, you will read through the entire New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs by the end of the year. I have designed this reading schedule to give you one week of worship (Psalms) and wisdom (Proverbs) at the beginning of each month, with the remainder of the readings taken from the New Testament.
To get the most out of your Bible reading, pray first and ask God to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you might grow in your knowledge of God. Take notes on what you are reading, and always look for practical ways to apply these truths to your life.
“This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.” (Joshua 1:8).
