We're reading Paul's Letters from Prison

We invite you to take part in our latest Bible Reading Plan, “Letters from Prison,” which features four letters that Paul wrote, while imprisoned, to churches that he started. Passages are designed to be read each weekday, typically taking less than five minutes.

The truth found in these letters has been changing peoples’ lives for 2,000 years, and we can’t wait to see how it will change lives in our church this year!

We believe that God can use the Bible to transform ordinary people into deeply devoted followers of Jesus. It's never too late to jump in! Let us know you're in by subscribing below. You'll receive occasional updates and notes on the readings.

Additional Resources and Tips

Not sure how to get started? Want to make the most of this Bible study? Check out the tips below on how to best use this reading plan.

Be consistent.

The readings are Monday-Friday. On the weekends, catch up if you get behind or read a Psalm.

Forget what you already know.

Read what’s actually in the text, approaching it with humility and with as few preconceptions as possible.

Read slowly and carefully.

Each day’s reading is very short; savor it.

Mark up the text.

Look for connections, contradictions, conundrums. What questions does it raise? Circle, underline, highlight, annotate.

Be prepared to be challenged.

When believers approach Bible study they are encountering a living Word, not analyzing a dead fish. Students of God’s living Word need to be open to the fact that the Word challenges our cultural assumptions in surprising ways.

Don't be afraid of difficult or mystery.

God's word is sometimes built around surprising paradoxes. An important part of reading the Bible is noticing unexpected twists in the text and deeply pondering their meaning. God is a God of surprises.

Allow the Holy Spirit to nudge you.

Get quiet and let God show you insights about who He is and what He wants to show you through this passage. Is He nudging you to think about an issue or do something in response to the passage? Sit with that idea and talk with God about it.
