30 Days With Jesus

23 Nov

I have never been very good at sticking with a Bible reading plan.  I start well but finish (or not finish) poorly.  I am better at keeping up a Bible study.  I guess I like the structure and the accountability that goes with a small group.  But I am currently between small group studies and my pastor’s sermon a few weeks ago was very convicting — so I am attempting yet again a reading plan.  To ensure a degree of success, I choose a very basic plan — 30 Days With Jesus.  I figured the Christmas season was the perfect time to read this plan.  So if you are like me and need to include more Bible reading in your day, click on the link above and join me.  If you begin today, you will have this plan completed before New Years. And having this one under your belt will be an incentive to keep any resolutions for Bible reading you may have for the new year.

I am also a member of the Common English Bible blog tour.  I will be using this new, contemporary version of the Bible along with my regular NIV study Bible.  For more information on the Common English Bible (CEB), click HERE.  About the CEB version —

It’s easier to read and understand. For many, reading the Bible and then truly grasping what it means can be a challenge. Yet the Bible is meant for everyone. The Common English Bible is a new translation of the Bible in a language that readers naturally speak and communicate—a common language. 

The publishers of the CEB are graciously offering a copy of this new Bible to one of my readers.  If you would like to enter this giveaway, just leave me a comment with your email address and your favorite Bible verse.  The winner will be picked November 30th.

(I received a copy of the Common English Bible from the publisher in return for posting about it for the length of the tour — November 20 – January 31.)

    I don’t do well with plans either. But you know what “they” say – if you want to make God laugh then have a plan. Sometimes he leads us in other directions.

    I like that plan. I am looking for a new study to do before the new year. This would be great. Thank you for posting about it. I have heard a little bit about the Common English Bible. Currently I use the ESV and I like it a great deal, but sometimes I get a little lost in all the translation. I would love a chance to win this new Bible version. My favorite verses are:
    Philippians 4:6-7

    Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

    Thank you for the chance.
