There’s no replacement for reading the Bible. But there are some very good supplements.
Last week Ryan talked about how you can read the Bible this year with people all over the world using our Global Bible Reader or the new Bible reading plans at Bible.Logos.com. Both are great ways to read the Bible while learning from and sharing with other believers.
If you just want to read by yourself or want to customize your own reading plan, there is the Bible reading feature in the Windows version of Logos. Rather than repeating what I wrote last year, I’ll let you check it out for yourself if you want to learn some tips for creating a reading plan in Logos for 2009.
Another feature in Logos for Windows that I’d encourage you to consider using this year is the Devotions section on the home page. Books whose content is arranged by day of the year are automatically added to the list of available devotional readings that you can choose from.
Here’s just a sampling of the scores of devotional books we have:
- Amazing Grace—366 Inspiring Hymn Stories for Daily Devotions by Kenneth W. Osbeck
- Drawing Near—Daily Readings for a Deeper Faith by John MacArthur
- Everyday Blessings by Max Lucado
- For the Love of God, Volume One by D. A. Carson
- For the Love of God, Volume Two by D. A. Carson
- From This Verse by Robert J. Morgan
- Grace for the Moment by Max Lucado
- Into His Presence by Charles Stanley
- More Light on the Path by David W. Baker and Elaine A. Heath
- Morning and Evening by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
- My Utmost for His Highest by Oswald Chambers
- On This Day by Robert J. Morgan
- Truth for Today by John MacArthur
- Tozer on the Almighty God: A 366-Day Devotional by A. W. Tozer
To add a book to your daily devotional reading, simply click “Customize View” on home page, scroll down to the Devotions section, and check the box next to Devotions and any of the books that you’d like to read through over the next year. Every day the next devotional will be waiting for you. Just click it to open the current day’s reading.
We trust that God would encourage your faith this year as your read His Word and meditate on its relevance for your life.
