Reading the Bible more is one of the most common resolutions for Christians heading into 2019. But statistics show that 80% of new year’s resolutions fail by mid-February.
Maybe this has been your experience. You find a new reading plan, you try harder. But by springtime, that same feeling of guilt and failure is back.
|How about trying something different?|
This year, Immerse can help you accomplish your Bible reading goals. Here are a few tips for getting started:
• Start small. Setting out to read the entire Bible in a year is admirable. It’s also really difficult. Try starting with a smaller goal, like reading the New Testament in 8 weeks or 16 weeks.
• Use a different Bible. Each volume of Immerse: The Reading Bible was crafted with one goal in mind: to provide the best reading experience possible. If you’re trying to create a habit of reading the Bible, it helps to use a Bible made for reading.
• Don’t do it alone. Group support gives a huge boost to the odds of achieving your goals. So how about starting an Immerse group? Get a few friends, neighbors, or family members who will commit to a reading and discussion schedule. Having a community of encouragement and accountability will not only help you stick to your Bible reading, it’ll make it much more enjoyable and enriching
