This year, we have been encouraging our people to be reading together - to be using the One Year Bible reading plan.
These days, there are many different ways to follow the One Year Bible reading plan. The CVC website provides links for a few "high tech" ways of accessing the the plan:
You can purchase a One Year Bible and follow along with the daily readings.
You can download A Printable One Year Bible Reading Plan to keep with your Bible.
You can read the One Year Bible On Your Mobile Device.
You can listen online as The One Year Bible Is Read for you.
You can read The One Year Bible Blog.
You can download The One Year Bible As A Podcast onto your iPod.
You can add a One Year Bible Widget to your desktop, website or blog.
You can buy a Loving God Journal at CVC and use the reading plan outlined in the journal.
So, really there are no excuses. Our battle is with the world, the flesh, and the devil. This is a matter of fighting our fleshly spiritual inertia, of warring with the enemy who wants to keep us away from the Bible, of weaning ourselves from the world, and of developing the spiritual discipline of Regular Unhurried Time (RUT) in God's Word.
This is a good RUT to get in and stay in!
Let's be able to pray with Jeremiah, "Your words were found, and I ate them, and your words became to me a joy and the delight of my heart, for I am called by your name,O Lord, God of hosts" (Jeremiah 15:16, ESV).
