Have you ever read the Bible in a year? It’s a great journey and one well worth taking.
The Bible can feel intimidating at times with all those tiny words and so few pictures. But not to fear, I assure you, there are a variety of ways you can accomplish reading cover to cover in 365 days or less!
In fact, the Bible only takes about 51 hours to read in its entirety. So instead of watching the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy 4 times in a row you could just read the whole Bible!
Okay, okay, that actually does sound a bit more extreme. But really, take a look at the infographic below to see how you definitely have the time to read the Bible in one year:
In the spirit of transparency, my phone tracks my usage, and last week I averaged 53 minutes a day of social media use! Imagine if we picked up our Bible before our phones!
Where to start? That’s a great question! I’ve used reading plans, and also just read genesis to revelation before. Really, you just need to try different strategies to see which one is most effective for you.
I am thinking this year to try using a special Bible-in-a-year Bible!
There is great reason for the believer to spend time in God’s word daily. Much like water to a seed, God’s word will bring life and growth to your faith. But understand, like water to a seed, some things may take time. Stick with it! Tell other people what you are trying to do and ask them to check in on you and help keep you accountable. There’s a million and one things that want your time, but none are as deserving as God.
I hope you will try reading the Bible in a year, time spent with God is never time wasted.
