Bible in a Year 2016
An important part of your spiritual growth process is spending time on your own studying God's Word. Attending Bible classes will also help your spiritual development, but you will get so much more out of it, when you have also spent time studying on your own. The scriptures themselves explain the importance of reading, understanding, and studying.
In Acts 17, when Paul and Silas were preaching the gospel in Berea, the people of the city searched the scriptures daily to see if Paul and Silas were telling the truth. They did not only want someone to tell them, but they wanted to read, study and understand the Word of God for themselves.
With the coming of the new year, many people commit themselves to reading the Bible in its entirety over the course of the year. For some it is a New Year's resolution; for others, it is a yearly habit.
Whatever the case may be for you, we encourage you to find the time that works best for you to commit yourself to daily Bible readings. Some do their readings first thing in the morning, while others do their reading before going to bed at night. Do what works for you, and don't give up.
