Let’s Read the Bible

Reading the Bible in a year is sometimes a huge challenge. let's take it slower by reading one chapter each day.

Have you ever said, “I wish I could read the Bible?” Do you have a desire to read God’s word? A longing that is soul-deep but, for some reason the thought of reading 3-5 chapters a day just seems impossible.

Or maybe you’ve tried the Bible year (many, many times); maybe even completed it, but want to take smaller bites of God’s word in one sitting.

How about reading one chapter of the Bible each day? You’re probably thinking, “One chapter a day? That would take forever!”

Let’s do the math: there are 1189 books in the Bible and 365 days in a year. So it would actually take about 3 years and 3 months. So let’s round it up leaving room for illness and the overwhelmed schedule etc. and say it will take 3 years and 6 months. “That’s a really long time.” you think.

Yes it is. But what if there was a community of people who were also being more intentional about reading their Bibles?

What if there was a place you could share your thoughts and ask questions – not from great scholars but from people just like you who wanted to get God’s word in their hearts? Would you be interested then?

Read the Bible

Let’s look at it another way - think of all the things that can be, or has been, accomplished in this amount of time:

  • Elijah prayed and there was no rain in all Israel for 3 ½ years.
  • Jesus’ ministry was 3 ½ years during which time he worked miracles and changed lives.

Not convinced? How about this:

  • You’ll finally have completed reading the Bible (maybe even for the first time)!
  • The time spent with God reading his word will change your life. You will be – transformed.
  • You would be part of a community of persons who had shared the experience with you.
  • You will have developed the habit of reading God's word consistently.

Join us at in an initiative to read the Bible every day. One chapter at a time.

Yes it’s going to take us three and a half years, but at the end of that time we’ll be better for it.

 We will be Christians with a sustained habit of reading the Bible and spending time in God’s word. We will be members of a community of Bible readers – part of the family of God.

If you desire to be a part of this wonderful movement, simply send a request to join the Facebook group Lord Transform Me. As we pray for transformation, let’s get intentional about the time we spend with God.
