Bible Knowledge

Did you know that people spend more time reading books about the Bible than they spend actually reading the Bible? Reading books about the Bible are wonderful if you want to study a specific Biblical topic in depth, but books about the Bible don’t replace the Bible. The best way to gain Bible knowledge is to read the Bible! Bible classes, sermons, and Pierce My Heart articles are wonderful, but they are to accompany daily Bible study, not take the place of it.

Whether you are used to reading your Bible every day, or usually don’t even crack it open, this Bible study will be beneficial because if you read the assigned chapters, you will actually read the entire New Testament by the end of this year! We’ll start with Matthew and go all the way through the book of Revelation. There is not very much reading per day, so even if you get behind, you should be able to take extra time and catch back up again. This summer is a wonderful time to get in the habit of regular Bible study because you won’t be tied down with school and homework. If your family is going on vacation, print out extra copies of the reading plan and let everyone take turns reading out loud in the car. (Reading the Bible is a much better way to pass the time than reading license plates!) If you have a summer job, take the reading plan with you and read on your breaks from work. There is no better way to unwind and regroup than to read the Bible and pray! Maybe you’re staying home all summer by yourself while your parents work; make it a habit to do your Bible reading before checking your e-mail, Facebook or Myspace. Our theme this month is “Pierce my heart in the Son,” and we will be reading through the book of Matthew and starting on Mark, which are both records of the life of Jesus. No greater man ever lived than Christ Himself, so learn about Him this summer by digging into your Bible and letting the Word of God pierce your heart!

  1. I prefer KJV or NKJV. I really want to have Old Testament Daily Reading. I love this website but I wish it had a log in type thing were we each have a page and you can mail each other online because I really enjoy talking.
