Bible Reading Plans for the New Year

In today’s sermon, I mentioned that the New Year is a great time to begin a new practice of regularly reading God’s Word. And in God’s grace, we have a number of different Bible reading plans available to us. Justin Taylor summarized many of the options in a recent post, which I would encourage you to read.

Whatever plan you think is best for you, the important point is to be faithfully taking in God’s Word! I pray that this New Year will be one in which your life displays increased fruitfulness and faithfulness, all to the glory of God!
