Bible Reading Plan 2019
A STUDY OF COLOSSIANS
How to read these passages
In this plan we hare looking at some quite profound material, so we have changed the format from some of our previous plans slightly - allowing you to read and reflect on each passage over two days, except the final week of the plan where we revert to a single day study leading up to our Count Me In Weekend.
As usual, you may find it helpful to follow this simple 4-step approach to get the most out of our daily readings – PRAY
P-ray. Clear your mind of your busy-ness by contemplating God’s greatness, asking forgiveness for anything that’s spoiling your relationship with Him and then thanking Him for His wonderful love for you in Jesus. Then ask the Holy Spirit to speak through what you are about to read.
R-ead. Don’t be casual or rush through your reading – read according to a plan and meditate prayerfully as you go.
A-nalyze. Or think. Perhaps identify a key phrase that sticks for that day and jot it down where you’ll see it regularly.
Y-ou. Finally remember the Bible was given to transform us. So finish each session by asking God how He wants to change you through what you’ve read (journaling might be helpful here) and pray for His Spirit to empower you to make the change real S
To get you started we have included a simple reflection of prayer for each reading designed to provoke a thought or two. But that of course is only a start—Let God speak to you through His Holy Spirit and take you where He leads. As before we have included a small space for you to make notes as you go on what God says to you as you read these passages.
May God bless your reading richly.
Note. If these readings whet your appetite for me you might want to get a copy of “2 minutes in the Bible with Jesus by Boyd Bailey—which provided the inspiration for this plan
