It is so important for us to keep our heads and hearts attuned to God and aware of His words. The Bible is by far the greatest source of truth and the surest way to hear from God.
Yet deciding to read God's Word is often hindered by not knowing where to start, or what to read.
We recommend reading a book at a time, wherever you start.
For example, if you want to read the Gospel of John or the book of Romans or Ephesians, all of which we'd recommend, start from the beginning and read through to the end of the book in however many sittings it takes. If you use a printed Bible rather than a Bible app, just be sure to have a handy bookmark and pick it up where you left off.
Sometimes we need more inspiration than this. This is where a good Bible reading plan can help.
We recommend you download the free YouVersion Bible app. This app offers many good Bible readings plans. As an alternative, men might head over to hereadstruth.com or download the app, and women might try shereadstruth.com or their app for women.
While there are many good plans, and many no-so-good plans here are a few we recommend.
