How to Read the Bible in a Year + How to Make Bible Reading more Enjoyable

Hey y’all!

As y’all know, I’m a Christian and I’m an avid reader. I’ve also read the Bible from Genesis to Revelations like over five times. I do it every year and each time I find something new that I didn’t notice before. I’ve actually been surprised by how many people haven’t read the Bible in its entirety. No shade at all, I just assumed everyone have (yes I’m that ignorant. I apologize). Anyway, if your goal is to read the Bible from beginning to end, this post is for you. Also, if you’re struggling to find Bible reading enjoyable, don’t fret because I have tips for you also.

First things first, why even read the Bible? Some people view it as a book of stories. Some people say they were written from men so we shouldn’t take it seriously. Some people view it as outdated. However, everything that was written in the Bible is inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16). For example, say there’s a CEO of a company who wants to send an email out. He/She has a secretary write down what to say in the email and the secretary sends it out throughout the company. Who’s words were they? The CEO’s or the secretary? God sent his inspired words through his holy spirit to each writer of the Bible.

What treasures lie in the Bible? You can find answers to life’s big questions (Proverbs 2:1-5), guidance for everyday life (Psalm 119:105), and actual real hope for the future (Romans 15:4). Is the Bible valid? Yep! Even though it was written by 40 different men over a time span of 1,600 years, all the words are harmonious. Some weren’t alive at the same time! Science and historians back up what the Bible teaches. It also has reliable prophecies, like the fall of Babylon.

So, how did I do it? How did I read my Bible in just under a year?

There you have it! That’s how I read my Bible in just under a year.

What if you don’t find your Bible reading enjoyable? What if you find it boring? I got you!!!!

If reading the Bible is your goal, I say go for it. I hope you find these tips helpful for your Bible reading journey. Let me know if you have additional questions!

What do you enjoy about reading the Bible?
