Many of us make New Year’s resolutions every year. Whether you like to jot down goals and openly talk about them with friends and family, or if you simply think of a new calendar year as a convenient time of renewal; most of us spend some time looking ahead, setting goals, making plans.
Whatever else your bucket-list may contain, I’d like to make a case for daily Scripture-reading time in 2022. This is a goal many of us make every year to varying degrees of success. In reality, it could be a goal we make or renew every single Sunday. Too many of us only read the Bible on Sunday.
Bible Gateway has a variety of ways to make this resolution more manageable and fun. I’ll list 3 of them here:
Subscribe to Bible Gateway’s free Verse of the Day
One of the easiest ways to keep God’s Word front and center in your life is by subscribing to the free Verse of the Day. It’s very simple. You can sign up quickly here, or navigate to our newsletter page and choose as many as 5 different Bible translations that will be sent to you in a single, daily free email.
Think of this as a launch point from which you can read the full Bible chapter on the Bible Gateway website or app.
Sign up to receive free Reminders for the NIV Daily Devotional
If the New International Version (NIV) is your preferred Bible translation, the free NIV Daily Devotional is perfect, and it’s a little more demanding than just a single verse.
For this devotional, you have the option of signing up to daily reminders so you can read it on the Bible Gateway website at your leisure, or you can sign up for free to have the whole devotional delivered to your inbox every morning.
The NIV Daily Devotional consists of a Scripture reading along with a short devotional reflection to help you meditate on and apply what you’ve just read. The readings are hand-picked from over 25 different popular NIV Bibles, including The Jesus Bible, the NIV Quest Study Bible, the NIV Zondervan Study Bible, and many more.
