Why read through the whole Bible?

I Timothy 3:15 From childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

Many modern people are familiar with the Bible but the people of God are to be students of the Bible. The Bible is God’s Word. The Bible doesn’t simply contain God’s words; it is God’s Word and by it we are made wise for salvation through faith that is in Jesus Christ. The Bible is bread and water for thirsty and hungry souls.

In 2017 we want you to join with the rest of the body at Cornerstone to read the Bible. The plan that we have selected is a Chronological plan that aims to keep the historical context together. This format keeps the prophetic books and the historical books side by side. It keeps the Psalms of David in line with what was happening in his life when he wrote them. The goal of such a plan is to keep the flow of Biblical history intact.

In addition to your reading, we will be posting weekly devotional guides to supplement your reading. These guides will be very simple and aim to help you in three ways: discussion, reflection, and prayer. Each devotion will encourage discussion, further study, and focused prayer about the week’s reading.
