Where do we come from? What is our purpose in life? Does it matter how we are spending our money? Are women worth less than men? How should we live our lives? Who is, who should be, the head and leader in our homes? Where do we find hope when things are not going according to plan?
God’s Word has so much to tell us – if we would only take the time to sit down, read and study it!
Personally I really like the KJV of the Bible and, even though English is not my mother tongue, I understand most of its words and their meaning. I prefer the KJV-ish words and use this Bible during my personal devotional time. I like to see a ye instead of a you on the page if that is what the text needs to say (ye = plural form of you). Coming from a German background this makes much more sense to me. Perhaps because I never had any dislike toward the old Lutheran Bible which also contains words that might sound strange to some (younger) readers.
I’ll have to admit that I’m a defender of the Textus Receptus(TR) which, again, leads me back to the KJV. Most modern versions are using the Nestle Aland and other source texts for the New Testament. I love to read the KJV, for its beauty and for its source text. However, I’m using a modern version (NKJV) on my blog to draw people to the Word and so that they will pick up their Bibles and read.
Bible Reading Plans
This year we are partially following The Legacy Bible Reading Plan I love the Psalms and I like to read at least one every day. That’s why I have been searching for a plan that will not “just read through the Book of Psalms” in only a few days of the year but will each and every day offer a separate reading of this precious part of the Bible. The Legacy Bible Reading Plan does separate readings in the Psalms but only on three days per week. That’s why I have come up with a plan that will guide us through this book twice a year. I have also divided the other books into daily portions. As for me, I needed a bit more of a guidance on which and how many chapters to read a day. You may like the plan just as it is. Give it a try, if you would like to. It’s easy to start in any month of the year and then just keep on following the plan.
Still looking for another guide to get you through the Bible in one, two, or three years? Check out Ligonier Ministries’ webpage called Bible Reading Plans for 2020 for a good selection of different plans. The website of ESV (English Standard Version) also provides some suggestions at Reading Plans.
