Every word of the Bible is living and will bring life to us even when we do not fully comprehend what we are reading. The Bible is our daily bread. To have a healthy spirit we have to have a well-balanced meal, and not just snack on familiar, topical, or even favorite portions.

The 2-tier approach:

Our year-long journey will take us through the New Testament three times and the Old Testament once. The pace works out to be around five chapters a day, out of five sections in the Bible. The New Testament readings are referred to as Tier One: Gospels/Acts and Epistles/Revelation. The Old Testament readings are referred to as Tier Two: History, Poetry, and Prophets.

Jesus is the fulfillment of all the Bible, so I would instruct you to immerse yourself in the New Testament passages daily and if you have the time, then go for the Old Testament passages.

Even though it’s broken up into 66 books, The Bible really is just ONE BOOK. By reading through both the New and Old Testaments simultaneously, we will grasp a deeper understanding of the heart of the Father and we are more likely to begin to SEE Jesus in every part of the Word. The Author, Himself longs to encounter you on every page.

Off we go!

That I may Know Him – Week 25

The word of God will make us free because it brings us to Jesus. Jesus said to those Jews who believed in Him, “If you abide in my word, you are my disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:31, 32). That’s how powerful...

That I May Know Him – Week 24

The Lord told Joshua to be strong and courageous and then He told him how. Strength and courage are required today in the face of so many uncertainties. God’s ability to perform His promises is ours to expect. But, when fear and dismay take over through our senses and...

That I May Know Him – Week 23

Scripture reading is the only way into the fullness of God. Without God’s word, we are powerless against the devil and subject to the world. Jesus said, in His prayer to the Father, before being offered up as our sacrifice: “I do not pray that You should take them out...

That I May Know Him – Week 22

Pentecost, where we celebrate the giving of the Law through the Spirit and not the letter. We are in or near Pentecost Sunday (depending on the year you use this reading schedule). Pentecost is the day Israel celebrates the giving of the Ten Commandments through Moses...

That I May Know Him – Week 21

All Scripture is given by the inspiration of God. As we read the scriptures given this week, we can expect that they will profit us for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, so that we—as matured sons and daughters of God—may be...

That I May Know Him – Week 20

When we read our Bible aloud, faith comes from hearing the word of God. When we accept God’s word as truth and read it with the expectancy of meeting Jesus in it, we are ready to hear the word near us, in our mouths and our hearts. “But what does it say? ‘The word is...

That I May Know Him – Week 19

Prosperity and Success are linked to Bible meditation. When we keep the word of God in our mouths through meditation, speaking to ourselves, and reading aloud the scriptures, we are promised prosperity and success, along with the courage and strength to observe God’s...

That I May Know Him – Week 18

We are building our house on the Rock to withstand life’s storms. Jesus said, “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and...

That I May Know Him – Week 17

When we continue in Jesus’ words, then we know the truth and are made free. This week, we will finish Acts and begin again in Matthew (TIER 1 – Round 2). Today we start Revelation. In Numbers, we will witness the rebellion of Israel against the Lord’s command to go in...

That I May Know Him – Week 16

We are not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation. Acts is heating up, leading to Paul’s arrest in Jerusalem, Peter finishes his epistles, and we will read through John’s epistles. Numbers bring us to the second Passover, silver...
