The Bible Reading Plan You REALLY Need

Well, the New Year is officially here, and with it comes that traditional zeal for personal growth that many people demonstrate every January. Even some in the Churches of God - who usually mock New Year's resolutions and the January New Year in general - seem to be jumping on the bandwagon.

Some COGs have begun circulating daily scripture reading and writing challenges for their members. So far, we've seen lots of Psalms and Proverbs, a fair amount of "stay the course," a handful of law and a sprinkle of grace. And, of course, the trademark COG scripture flipping that circumvents any contextual understanding.

We at As Bereans Did applaud anything that gets people reading the Bible. But, if we may be so bold, here are some passages that we'd like to see our COG friends dig into - in context - during the rest of January. Or really, any time this year. Read them, write them, whatever. You know us, we're not going to get all legalistic about it. Obviously. 😏

Yes, fine scriptures for certain, but we should not neglect such a great salvation by overlooking warnings:

February 1: Matthew 7:15-20;
February 1: II Timothy 3:1-9 [Arguably representing the greatest fulfillment of prophecy ever!]
