LEMC Bible Reading Plan 2023
At LEMC, we believe in the importance of spending time in God’s Word. Jesus said in John 14:21, “Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.” In order for us to obey God’s Word, we have to know it, and when we obey it we show how much we love God, and then Jesus promises to reveal Himself to us. Obedience is the purest act of worship, and we show by our actions what we truly believe.
This year we are going through the F260 plan as a church. This plan doesn’t go through the entire Bible, but instead covers foundational chapters focusing on Israel’s history, the Messiah’s coming and ministry, and his final instructions for his disciples so that we might more faithfully love God and walk in his ways. The plan schedule has you reading about 2 chapters each day, 5 days per week, with 2 days off that can be used for catching up if you fall behind during the week. Join us in making God’s Word a priority for 2023!
There are 3 ways you can go deeper with this Bible plan in 2023:
You may have a method of taking notes during your Bible reading that you already use and find helpful. If not, the H.E.A.R. method is a simple and effective way to help you understand and apply God’s Word to your life.
You can find a detailed guide that will help you to learn the H.E.A.R. journaling method by clicking here.
2. Scripture Memory
Each week of the F260 reading plan has 2 Scriptures passages to memorize. At the beginning of each week, write the passages down on one side of separate index cards, and write the Scripture reference on the other side. Review the cards a few times a day over the next 7 days.
3. Read with Others
Ask a few others to join you in reading together. Groups are beneficial because we can keep each other accountable to read, learn from others as we share what God has been teaching us, or simply asking questions.
You could ask some friends, do it as a family, or get to know a few others from church better by asking them to join your group. As a group you could decide to have a group chat, or meet in person periodically.
