  • Why read the Bible from beginning to end?
    If we believe that the Bible is God's word to mankind, it is important that we read and study it, so that we know the best way to live our lives according to His wishes. Reading the Bible from cover to cover is a wonderful discipline for every Christian and gives us the big picture of God's character and dealings with humanity.
  • Why read it in community?
    There's something encouraging about knowing that other people are taking on the same challenge you are. This is why people trying to lose weight, or to overcome alcohol or drug abuse find support and guidance from others who are on the same journey. Communionet groups read a daily prayer key that is used as the focus in prayer. Many of the keys also reinforce the teaching of the Bible reading for the week. Likewise, reading the Word together with others is a way to grow together with others.
  • Why read the Bible, if I can't understand it?"
    We know that many people have found some of the books of the Bible difficult to understand. The Old Testament is full of prophetic imagery, as well as specific prohibitions and dietary guidelines that we don't practice today. This year we are including links to a video introduction for each book of the Bible we read. This will improve our historical understanding and give us more context as we read the Bible. In other words, although there is a benefit to the discipline of reading, we plan to provide tools to make reading more understandable.
  • Why should pastors read the Bible through a plan?
    We are blessed and delighted to have several pastors praying with us at Comunionet. It is important that they also read the entire Bible throughout the year. There is often a tendency for pastors to only pick up their Bibles when they have to prepare a sermon. But reading the Bible consistently gives them a chance to stay in the Word without the pressure of preparing a sermon.
  • How do I know how much to read?
    When you sign up for the plan (using the YouVersion app, or by downloading the document with the readings listed), you'll already have your daily reading chapters divided, so you know how much to read each day.
  • What do I do if I'm late?
    Unfortunately, things happen that can throw us out of our routine of reading the daily portion of Scripture. A good idea for those moments is to simply turn off the television and leave the social networks. That way, we can have an hour or two to catch up.
  • What if I didn't start the plan on January 1?
    If you're using the YouVersion app, there's an easy way to reset your Bible Reading Plan to start on January 1, even if you started the plan on a different day of the year. Here are the instructions on the YouVersion website: To sync your plan with other users using the same plan, or to reset your plan start date: 1. Determines which day of the plan the other users are on (this example uses day 145 of a 365-day plan). 2. Select the third day before the date you want to sync with (in this example it would be day 142). 3. Mark all passages as completed (or read) that day. 4. Do the same for days 143 and 144. You will now have three days marked complete before the sync date. 5. Make sure there are no days marked as complete after day 145 and select day 145 to be the active day - Go to the main calendar and check if partial completed days are circled in green. 6. Select the reading plan menu (the three dots icon) and check “Catch up”. 7. To have the full reading plan when you're done, you'll need to manually mark as “read” every day between 0 and 144
