Reading the Bible in 90 days

OK, Bible readers. Start your engines, and prepare to be blessed.

A friend just issued a challenge – to read through the entire Bible in 90 days.

I know. It sounds like a daredevil feat of focusing, studying, and plowing through pages of reading. But it is totally doable, even during the whirlwind of the holiday season.

Actually, that makes this all the more appealing to me. Maybe you understand.

I am accepting this challenge, after praying over it. I am looking forward to finding secret chunks of quiet time to revisit familiar passages and refocus on sections I may have skimmed over the years.

It’s about 10-20 chapters a day. And we should finish in three months or so – right around mid-January, or early February, if you need a little more time to catch up.

My friend even created an open Facebook group to foster mutual encouragement and accountability. Gotta love that.

Anyone want to read along? Choose your Scripture version. Put the Bible in your headphones, or run it through your car's audio system for your daily commute. Just let God lead you through His entire revealed Word, from cover to cover.

Here are the first readings for our 90-day Bible reading challenge group:

10/22, Tues: Nehemiah 1-13
10/23, Wed: Esther 1-10; Job 1-7
10/24, Thurs: Job 8-24
10/25, Fri: Job 25-42
10/26, Sat: John 1-15
10/27, Sun: John 16-21 ; Acts 1-6
10/28, Mon: Acts 7-16
10/29, Tues: Acts 17-28

Or you can use your own Bible reading calendar.

One thing’s for sure. God blesses the reading of His Word.

For whatever was written in former days 
was written for our instruction, 
that through endurance 
and through the encouragement of the Scriptures 
we might have hope.
(Romans 15:4, ESV)
