Bible Reading Plan

“Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you.”

Joshua 3.5 NIV

Getting Started


Kingsway Church begins a year long endeavor to read the scriptures daily, prioritize time with God
 and practice the spiritual discipline of weekly fasting.

Biblical literacy rates have dropped over the years even though general literacy rates have risen. If we do not read the Bible, then we will not know it. And if we do not know the Bible, we cannot Know God and Follow God in his Way that is revealed in it.

Would you commit to joining us in "consecrating ourselves" before the Lord at throughout 2021?

HERE IS THE PLAN!

STEP 1

PREPARE

HOW DO WE MAKE BIBLE READING AND PRAYER A PART OF OUR DAILY LIFE?
WE CAN LEARN FROM THREE THINGS JESUS DID.

"And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed."
-Mark 1.35 ESV

A Certain Time

Jesus got up early in the morning to spend time with His Heavenly Father. In order for prayer to work, we should do the same. Make a daily appointment with God and keep it

A Certain Place

Jesus had a prayer place. Your prayer place needs to be an undistracted environment where you can pray out loud and perhaps have some worship music playing in the background. 

A Certain Plan

Plan to read Scripture daily, spend time in prayer and incorporate a one day fast into our week.   We will be using a bible reading plan developed by The Bible Project. 

STEP 2

READ SCRIPTURE

Kingsway Church will be partnering with The Bible Project and Read Scripture who have created a unique and powerful daily reading experience called Read Scripture to help you engage with the Bible. We encourage you to download the Read Scripture App below, as it cleanly presents each day’s reading along with the beautiful Read Scripture videos.
You can also download the PDF guide.

Daily B.R.E.A.D

We will daily approach to Scripture using the acronym BREAD to guide us. This approach to Scripture reading invites us to:

BE STILL: Find a place where you can encounter God, ask Him to fill the space and then take a minute in stillness.
READ: Read scripture slowly and look for one verse that stands out, grabs your attention, or interests you.
ENCOUNTER: Take your chosen verse and meditate on it, consider what God might be saying to you.
APPLY: Turn your focus outwards, think about how you might be able to apply this to your day.
DEVOTE: Close by writing a simple prayer of devotion to God.
