In a few weeks the New Year will be upon us, which means it’s about time to start contemplating the possibility of a New Year’s resolution or two. One common resolution is to commit to a Bible Reading Plan. Whether you’re doing a full year read through, or maybe just the New Testament, all are worthy goals. So, what about you? Are you participating in a reading plan this year?

If you’re interested in doing a Bible reading plan this year, consider using one of Bible Gateway’s reading plans. They’re restarting on January 1 and are a great way to get daily reminders and links to that day’s passage.
It’s a great time to start making—or continue making—God’s Word an integral part of every day. Head over to the newsletters page to sign up for free!
