Bible Reading Plans

As followers of Jesus, our desire is to bring glory to God by thinking and living like Jesus. Thankfully, God has not left us to figure out how to do that. He gave to us his word by which we can know the mind of God and do the will of God. In fact, James 1:22 says, that if we are content to just listen to the words of God and not do them then we are living in self-deception. A true follower of Jesus, wants to know God’s word and wants to live God’s word. Below are different Bible reading plans that can guide you to both know and live the word of God.
