“Man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.”
Now those are words to live by. Jesus himself recognized how important this verse is, when–faced with hunger that undoubtedly none of us has faced– quoted it rather than seek out food.
Yet in spite of how precious the Word of God is, we often neglect our time in it. We neglect it, not for lack of good intentions, but because we fail before we have even started–we fail to plan.
Make 2015 different. Commit to read through the entire Bible in an entire year. Do it from Genesis to Revelation. Do it chronologically. Do it with little portions of the Old Testament and New Testament each day. However you choose to do it, would you commit to live out Deuteronomy 8:3 this year with me?
The dear brothers and sisters at Crossway Publishing, have compiled a helpful array of Bible reading plans. You can choose from the different approaches above, and you can even have them email you a reminder each day.
