This reading guide was created back in the summer of 2016 when we preached through the life of Abraham (Genesis 12-25). These chapters in the Bible are rich with history, theology, and insights into our own lives. This guide is designed to give you a simple plan for reading, studying, and reflecting on the Scriptures.
The guide creates three touch points throughout the week leading up to Sunday’s sermon. It doesn’t matter what three days of the week you do the reading plan (Monday, Wednesday, Friday perhaps) as long as you focus on the chapter assigned for that specific week. Here’s the flow for each week:
- Day 1: Read the chapter. (That’s it. Five minutes. You could probably read it twice).
- Day 2: Read the chapter and answer a few questions designed to help you dig deeper in the text.
- Day 3: Read the chapter and answer a few questions designed to help you reflect and apply what you are learning personally.
- Following Sunday: Listen to the sermon for that week as our pastors teach on the chapter you have just studied throughout the week.
We pray that this guide would help you meditate on God’s word and that the story of Abraham would come alive to you in new and profound ways.
