The new year is just around the corner! And while any time is a good time to spend more time with God and his word, the new year is a good prompt for most of us. To help you plan and do your bible study next year, here are some resources that might help.
Bible reading plans
Many of the apps above have their own Bible reading plans built in, but you might want a separate plan or perhaps even a paper plan to print out. Here are a few options
The Bible Project reading plans
The Bible project provides a downloadable bible reading plan that includes suggested videos to watch at the same time. They also have an app coming out soon which may provide more options too.
Bible.org email lists
You can get a daily email with a bible reading based on one of a selection of different bible reading plans. Just click the link and find the right one for you
The Bible Reading Plan Generator
This handy web app from John Dyer lets you make a custom Bible reading plan with options for the way you read through (chronological, books in order, OT and NT each day etc) which days you read on, when you start, how many books to read…basically, a lot.
Tracking rather than planning
A different approach I’ve seen is to track what you read rather than plan what you should read. This can be very useful for people who fall into guilt and legalism over reading plans.
There are apps you can download and beautiful pdfs you can pay for, but here is a free PDF from Paper Haven.
In previous years we have had a couple of sermons on the topic of Bible studies and discipleship goals for the coming year. You can listen to the below.
The Be Still Series from 24-7 Prayer
24-7 Prayer created a series of videos on quiet times that can be a useful prompt as you start the new year.
