This summer join your SPC family and read through the New Testament together. In 90 days you can say you've read the entire New Testament, digesting the story of Jesus life, death and resurrection, through the birth of his church, to the great conclusion of heaven and earth--what an opportunity. Simply download the plan and follow along as our staff provides daily posts on social media to keep us all going. A great chance to grow and be fed this summer.
Some of you might be thinking, “Um … We’re going to the read the entire New Testament in one summer? That’s too much!
Actually, if we spread the New Testament out over 90 days, it’s a lot easier to read. It divides up into about three chapters a day.
HOW TO MAKE A READING PLAN:
- DECIDE ON A SET TIME TO READ. Habits form when we do the same thing at the same time every day.
- BEFORE YOU READ, say a quick prayer and offer your reading time over to God. Ask God’s Spirit to lead you into all truth as you begin.
- TAKE A FEW NOTES during and after your reading. In fact, maybe pick something in particular you want to take notes on. Think about what you hope to learn and where you’d like to grow over the summer and then decide to take notes on anything pertaining to those things.
- FINALLY, recognize that reading Scripture is not magic. It’s formative, which means that some days nothing will happen. It might even be super boring. Other days, something will strike you right in the deepest parts of your being. But over time, you’ll see that the Scripture you read works into your innermost being and cultivates faith, courage, and hope in God.
