Getting to Know Your Bible
Let’s admit it—the Bible seems long and boring. Large chunks of it feel irrelevant to everyday life. But what if there’s more to the Bible than inspirational stories and encouraging quotes to make us feel better? What if the Bible was meant to be hard? Is there really a payoff for pushing through the Bible’s confusion and complexity?
There most certainly is.
We believe the full library of Scripture, all 66 books, create one unified story that points to Jesus. Any investment you make will pay off. No discipline has the potential to impact your life more than spending quality time getting to know your Bible every day. Even (and maybe especially) the parts that are weird or hard to understand.
These Bible resources are here to help you take the next step in your Bible journey. As you read Scripture for yourself, you will not only discover its beauty and power, but our hope is that you will also grow closer to Jesus than ever before.
Scripture Reading is one of our main values at RFC. Join us in getting a word from God from the Word of God each day.
The Bible Reading Plan is broken down into bite-sized portions for each day of reading. The first passage will either be a New Testament or Psalms reading. We like to think of this as a “meal.” And in the second passage(s) you will read from the Old Testament. If you read both portions, think of this as a “feast.” For the most part, this section is organized chronologically, so you will have the opportunity to read through the Old Testament in the historic order in which it occurred.
Depending upon how hungry you are on a particular day you may opt for a meal or the feast. But know this—the idea is not to just get through the plan, but to encounter Jesus along the way.
One of the best ways to stay engaged with Scripture throughout the year is to use a Bible reading plan. There are a lot of reading plans out there – it can feel overwhelming sometimes. We have created our own Bible Reading Plan. It will take you chronologically through the whole Bible in one year. We also recommend the Read Scripture Plan. It is a great resource to learn more about what you are reading.
