Bible Reading 2013: The 5 x 5 x 5 Plan
Discipleship is a relational journey—a daily walk with Jesus empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit—taking us more deeply into a love relationship with our Heavenly Father, an increasing likeness, in sum and substance, to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and a more compassionate and practical concern for our fellow man.
It is also an intentional and strategic activity on our part. There are certain things that disciples actively do to grow—it doesn’t just happen passively. And nothing is more vital to a growing discipleship than reading and reflecting on the Word of God in a deliberate and consistent way.
I hope you have a plan for your own personal journey for 2013 as a disciple of Jesus. I do…as does the fellowship where I serve as pastor. I want to invite you to adopt the plan that I will use this year—it’s called the 5 x 5 x 5 Bible Reading Plan, a systematic way to read through the New Testament—and join me in this exciting journey of growth. There is nothing more powerful than reading, absorbing and living out the Word of God. It’s what disciples do!

I am stoked about my walk with Jesus in 2013. I know you are, too! With the ever-present help of the Holy Spirit and a few intentional practices on our part, we can expect to look a little (hopefully a lot) more like Jesus by the end of next year.
May God perfect everything that concerns you in 2013.
