Welcome to the 2015 Bible Reading Challenge! For the past two years, we have read through the Bible in a year and most of us have used the M’Cheyne reading plan. While this is a wonderful plan that I truly love, this year I’ve decided to focus on one chapter a day instead of 4. We won’t read the entire Bible through in a year; but we will read through at least one book each month.
Bible Reading Challenge for January
For the month of January, we are focusing on the book of Proverbs and we will read through one chapter a day. There are 31 chapters, so it works out perfectly.
Each Friday we will check in with each other and comment on the post to keep one another encouraged to continue reading. This month, I plan to add a few questions each Friday to allow us the opportunity to discuss the wisdom we are gaining from the book of Proverbs.
I’m excited about the layout of this new challenge and hope that you are too! Here are a few of the advantages I see:
- Reading the Bible promotes spiritual growth.
- Having a weekly group to check in with makes for wonderful accountability.
- Reading one chapter a day will give us more time to soak up the Word daily.
The Simple Bible Study Guide
To encourage further study, I wanted to remind you of this wonderful tool that I love to use, The Simple Bible Study Guide. By answering four questions for each chapter of the Bible, you can read and study through the passage. This guide is available for you to print as a bookmark or as a journal page.

Read Through the Bible On Your Own
If you want to use our weekly Friday meetup for your own Bible reading plan, you are more than welcome to do so! I would encourage you to take a peek at this awesome plan that shows you exactly how to read your Bible through on your own, at your own pace.
Well, friends, there is the 2015 Bible reading challenge unveiled. I’m excited to see what the New Year holds and all that God is going to do through the Bible reading challenge!
If you plan to join in the January Bible reading challenge, what is your favorite aspect of this particular challenge?
