Pastor Paul will preach an overview of the Bible throughout this year. From Genesis to Revelation, we’ll trace the thread of the gospel that begins in the Garden of the Eden, becomes visible in the life and death of Jesus, and ends with worship around the throne of God at the end of time.
The F-260 is a two hundred and sixty day reading plan that highlights the foundational passages of Scripture that every disciple should know. It is a manageable plan that believers who have never read the Bible before could complete. Learn more here.
How Does It Work?
The plan expects believers to read 1 or 2 chapters a day for 5 days each week, with an allowance for weekends off. The 2 off-days are built in so you may catch up where you’re unable to read. In order to digest more of the Word, the F-260 encourages believers to read less and to keep a H.E.A.R. journal. See a sample H.E.A.R. entry below.
Memorizing the Word
While many plans for memorizing Scripture are effective, a simple system is usually best. All you need is a pack of index cards and a committed desire to memorize God’s Word. Write the reference of the verse on one side of the card and the text of the verse on the other. Focus on five verses at a time, and carry your pack of Scripture cards with you. Throughout the day, whenever you have a few minutes, pull out your pack of Scripture cards and review them. Read the reference first, followed by the verse. Continue to recite the verse until you get a feel for the flow of the passage. When you are comfortable with the text, look only at the reference side of the card in order to test your recall.
