Let’s Read the Bible Together!
We have a simple vision at Calvary Chapel of Greece: to know Jesus, follow Jesus, and live for Jesus. One of the greatest things we can do to help us make that vision a reality in our lives is to develop a daily habit of prayer and Bible study. In the gospel of John 8:31-32, Jesus said, “If you continue in my word, then are you my disciples indeed; and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” The more we follow after Jesus and learn of Him as we study the scriptures together, the more we will experience greater freedom, joy, and victory in our daily lives. In Psalm 119:11, the Psalmist declares, “Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee.” The Word of God is living and powerful and as we build our lives in obedience to His Word, we are building on a foundation that will endure any storm that comes our way (Matthew 7:24-27).
For the year 2017 we have selected a Bible reading plan that will help everyone in our church read the whole Bible together in 365 days. The reading plan is broken up into 12 parts, one for each month of the year. Each month begins a new part, so anyone can join in at anytime and take part of this experience with us. Each section includes both Old and New Testament chapters, with Psalms and Proverbs spread throughout.
This plan can be followed using the “You Version” Bible App. Simply download the app on your mobile device or click on the link above. Choose to “plans” then “Whole Bible” and find the plan called “Lets read the Bible Together” then pick out the current month. This series works well with audio Bibles, and you can listen to each days reading in less than 20 minutes! A printed version of the plan is available in the church lobby.
Each week we will be posting a devotional from the passages that we are reading together to encourage and exhort us in our walk with the Lord. I invite you to join with us this year as we read and study the Bible together!
