Exodus Reading Plan
Our Sermon Series through the book of Exodus starts February 7th.
To go with it we will be going through a daily reading plan (Moday thru Friday) starting February 8th until Good Friday, April 2nd.
Before you jump into the reading.
As you prepare for these daily readings, we encourage you to do three things:
1. Find a time each day that works best for you. Whether it's morning, lunch break, evening, or before bed - finding a regular time can help you get in the habit of reading Scripture.
2. Find a place that allows you to quiet your mind. Whether it's an office, your car, a closet, or your garage - a solitary place will help you hear from God. And turn off the notifications on your phone!
3. Before reading, pray and ask God to speak to you. It is the Holy Spirit who illuminates God's revealed Word, and we need his help. Consider Him your tour guide of the bible.
To keep it simple, here are three questions to consider prayerfully as you read each passage:
- What does this reveal about God? What does this reveal about his character, how he works, his love, etc.?
- How am I to live in light of what it reveals about God (your answer to question #1)? What should this change about my life?
- Is there a next step I can take to apply what I just read?
