Daily Bible Reading Plan
The 2020 Crossroads Daily Bible Reading Plan is about learning and understanding God’s Word. Follow the Reading Plan, and in a year you’ll have read the New Testament Twice.
The Bible is the Word of God, so it carries His authority and all we require for godly living. God never speaks to us in code – He’s given us His commandments in our own language, so we can know Him. Through the voices of the prophets and apostles, God has revealed His will to humanity, including a way of knowing His Son Jesus, the only way to a restored and unbroken relationship with God. For the church, eagerly anticipating Jesus’s return, Scripture is how we learn to wait on the Lord and live well: in holiness, in active compassion for the widow and the orphan, in pursuit of eternal life, and in bold witness to the lost.
Just like we learn anything in life, we understand the Bible best when we approach it with the right disposition, seeking to learn and to submit ourselves to what we learn from God. In reality, all pursuit of Scripture must be a pursuit of the heart of the Father, who allows us to know Him by His Word. As we grapple with passages of Scripture, we wrestle to know God Himself. And knowing God is the key to the full and abundant life we’ve always longed for.
