LIFEJOURNAL READING PLANS & RESOURCES

These reading plans are designed to encourage you to consistently spend time in Scripture, so it becomes a life-giving habit!

What are the different plans?

  1. The Story Bible Reading Plan is a collection of stories illustrating God’s character and His desire to be reconciled with the souls He created. The Story Plan summarizes the Bible’s key accounts, highlighting the events and people that played a part in God’s story of redemption.
  2. The Whole Bible Reading Plan combines two readings every day, typically an Old and a New Testament passage, walking you through the entire Bible.
  3. The Chronological Bible Reading Plan follows the story of how God rescued humanity through Jesus in the order that it happened. 
  4. 40 Days With Jesus Bible Reading Plan is designed to lead you through the Bible in 40 days on a journey to better understand Jesus.

Here’s how to get the most out of your Bible reading:

Use this acrostic for the word TASTE to experience God through His Word.
T = Time
Make time in your day to spend with God, reading the Bible.
A = Ask
Ask God to speak to you through His Word. If there is unconfessed sin in your life, confess it to God, and ask Him forgive you. You will be able to hear from God more clearly when you approach Him with a clean heart.
S = Scripture
Read your LIFE Journal scripture for the day. Write out the verse(s) that stood out to you most. Consider memorizing the verse(s).
T = Truth
Write down a truth you learned from the verse(s) and how you will apply that truth to your life.
E = Express
Express your thoughts to God through prayer and worship. Write out a prayer to God or lyrics of a worship song that express your heart to God.
