North Broadway Baptist Church

Each year, we encourage you to read through your Bible, or at least make it a habit to read your Bible every day. This year is no exception. The reading plan we are following this year is a 52 week plan that was developed by Michael Coley and can be found at http://www.bible-reading.com. As always, the readings for an entire month will be shown below.

     Q: Help! I started reading but missed a few days (or I'm coming in part-way through the year). How do I catch up?
     A:  Starting TODAY, make sure you start reading at least one reading per day so that you don't get further behind. There's nothing special about the one year (or 52 week)                     time frame. If you've missed a week, just pick up where you left off and make it a "53 week" plan. If you've only missed two or three (or 4) days, try doing double-readings               on the days of the week that you previously missed. You got behind one day at a time. Rather than getting caught up all in one day, catch up one day at a time.
           Perhaps you have one day with a lot of free time. Make it a catch-up day! We've all had days where we've read hundreds of pages in a good book. Why not do it with the               Bible? 
If you are not behind, but know you might have a couple of days coming up where you may not have time to fit in the entire reading, consider reading a few                           chapters ahead so you won't feel overwhelmed trying to play catch up.

           Use some combination of the above. If you've missed 17 days, you can do double readings for 3 days, extend your plan a week, and have a catch-up day.
           Most importantly,continue reading at least one reading per day. When you get behind, it's too easy to just stop altogether. It's better to be behind than stopped.

      Q: I've tried to be consistent, but I keep falling behind. What can I do?
      A: Don't allow yourself to become stressed out or feel guilty. DO get an accountability partner; someone who will ask you daily how your reading, prayer life, and other                         things are going. Encourage one another to grow spiritually. Read the daily reading as early as possible in the day. You'll be far less likely to forget if it's the first thing you               do and you'll get a spiritual boost by making the Bible first each day! Follow King David's example in Psalm 63:1 when he said, "early will is seek thee".
          Whatever method you choose, join with us and take time daily to be in the Word, as it keeps us on track for the Lord and it will help us to become more like Christ every day.
