Many Christians start the new year resolved to spend more time reading God’s Word.  I commend them.  There’s a reason King David says in Psalm 1 that the man who delights in the law of the Lord and meditates on it day and night is blessed.  Reading God’s Word is like eating spiritual food.  Skip it, and eventually you’ll die.  Savor it, and you’ll grow stronger in your relationship with God.  It’s simple to do.  And it’s also hard work.

That’s where a good Bible reading plan can be helpful.  Crossway Publishers has a list of reading plans based on the English Standard Version available here.  Personally, I like D.A. Carson’s suggestion to take the M’Cheyne plan and spread it out over two years.  You can download Carson’s version here.  Or if you’re into all things iPhone, here’s my new favorite bible reading app.

Matthew grew up attending KingsWay and joined the pastoral staff in 2009. God has blessed him and his wife, Aliza, with three rambunctious boys. Matthew did his undergraduate work at the University of Richmond in chemistry and political science, spent a year at the Sovereign Grace Pastor’s College, and received his Masters of Divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
