Want To Read Through The New Testament With Me?

A photo I took of a book written in 1899.  

I stink at consistent bible reading... yup... I said it...

Don't they say in 12 step programs that honesty is the first step to recovery?  Well, I say I value the Word of God, but I don't spend much time in it.  

But I want that to change.  So I'm throwing excuses and any feelings of guilt out the window.  Here we go...  

Simple challenge.  There are 260 chapters in the New Testament.

I'm going to read 5 chapters a day.  Which means if I don't miss a single day I could be finished in 52 days.  My goal is to be finished by the end of June.  

May 1st - Matthew chapters 1-5.  
May 2nd - Matthew chapters 6-10 and so on...

Who's with me?  Maybe I'll make Friday's post my thoughts on the past week's reading.  And we can discuss what we're learning in the comments!  (I miss my Maryland bible study!)

Engage:  Are you good about daily bible reading?  Are you going to read through the New Testament with me?  Let us know in the comments.  


  1. I'm pretty bad at consistency, but I've been following a Bible plan the assistant pastor at my church made and it has REALLY helped. I get up and have coffee and breakfast with Jesus pretty consistently. It normally takes the time I eat cereal to read a few chapters. Thanks for being honest.

  2. awesome, i'm glad you've found a good groove!
