Reading the Bible Through

This is the time of  year where many christians pursue the goal of reading the Bible through in a  year.  I have grown up in a christian home and have been challenged many times to do this such thing.  It has been a challenge that I, sorry to say, have never conquered.

I have read through Genesis countless times, but this year it stops. It doesn’t stop because I am going to read the whole Bible this year.  See, I started a new reading plan last year.  It is a year reading plan, but being a slacker, didn’t make it through.  In fact I only made it half way through.  So this year I determined I was not going to start over again.  I don’t want to read Genesis again and possibly miss Revelation.  So I am pushing forward.  I have checked the boxes through half the readings and I am going to keep going.  There is no stopping me.  I will continue to plow through I Chronicles.  The son of… was the son of…. was the son of….  And maybe by this time next year I will be able to say…it is finished.  I will have finally read all of God’s Word.

Do you plan to read the Bible through this year?

  1. Good for you for not starting over. I’ve never read the whole Bible through in a year either. I’m not even sure I want to. But reading the whole Bible through is definitely a goal worth accomplishing on an ongoing basis, the length of the time frame isn’t that important.


  2. Two years ago John and I started this plan intending to take two years to do it. It seems much more do-able that way!
