I have just added a 40 day Bible reading guide for the Gospel of John to the Lent Resource page. It is a check list along with some tips on how to be consistent in your Bible reading. While this list is set up as a Lenten discipline it really could be used over any 40 day period. This list begins on a Wednesday and ends on a Saturday six weeks later. Sunday’s are free days for catching-up or reflecting on a reading that grabbed you from earlier in the week. I did this because traditionally Sundays are not included in the count of 40 days of Lent.
Last year a member of my church took on reading the Gospel of Luke in 40 days. That discipline got him start reading daily. If you have wanted to read the Bible daily, but have yet to succeed, then reading either John or Luke in 40 days could be a great opportunity for you to get started.
