One Method for Reading the Bible
#1 Start with What Is Most Important: Read one of the Gospels. Richelle’s suggestion: The Gospel of Luke, Pastor Doug’s suggestion: The Gospel of Mark.
#2 Face Your Fears and Go a Little Deeper: Read one of Paul’s letters like Romans or Galatians
#3 Challenge Yourself to Read the Entire Bible: Find a reading schedule that works for you. This doesn’t have to be done in any set time or any set order. Here is a link to Biblegateway’s webpage with reading plans.
#4 Pray, Pray, Pray: Let the portion of the Bible you are reading form you conversation with God.
