Bible Reading Plans

40 days of Remembrance!

A Bible Reading plan for each day of Lent

What is Lent?

This is a time in which we anticipate Christ’s victory over the darkness of sin and death and remember His great sacrifice for us.   C.S. Lewis said it is a season of “happiness and wonder that makes us serious.”

Below are 40 passages of Scripture to read and think about as we remember Christ’s death, burial and resurrection.

The passages are relatively short, so spend time thinking about each phrase. A good study Bible can help with things you may not understand.

Ask questions of yourself and the passage.  What is the main point? What is the Biblical writer trying to say? How should you personally respond to the passage? How does the Biblical teaching apply to your life?  Where do you need to grow or change? How has Christ already changed you?  These are just some of the questions that can help you “dive deeper” into each passage.

After reading each passage, pray. Ask Christ to genuinely transform your life to one that models Christ’s life.  Praise Christ for His goodness and provision.

May the Lord richly bless your reading of His Word.
