Bible Reading Plan for Week of January 6

Joshua is now commanding the Israelites, and he leads them across the Jordan River into the Promised Land.  Joshua takes his orders from God, and he directs the Israelites in how they need to drive out the people of the land.  The conquest and distribution of the land is outlined in this book of the Bible. On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon.  Please consider the questions below regarding the…

Understanding the Book of Joshua

Today, in the Rocky Creek Bible Reading Plan, we start reading the book of Joshua.  Moses has died and Joshua is now leading the Israelites into the Promised Land.  Under Joshua’s capable leadership the Israelites learn that victory comes through faith in God and obedience to His word, rather than through military might or numerical superiority.  Check out the video below from the Bible Project to give you an overview of the book.  Hopefully, this helps you prepare for the…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of December 30

As we transition into the new year, it is fitting that we are transitioning from the book of Deuteronomy to the book of Joshua.  The Israelites are transitioning from the wilderness to the Promised Land and the leadership transitions from Moses to Joshua.  God is sovereign through these transitions, and He is still sovereign today.   Allow Him to lead you this year and experience all that He has for you.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of December 23

We are continuing to learn about the law through the book of Deuteronomy.  We have seen what God has done for Israel (chapters 1-4) and some of what God expects of Israel.  Our readings this week show us more of what God expects and they take us into a section of what God will do for Israel (chapters 27-34).  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon.  Please consider the questions…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of December 16

We are getting a second look at the laws of God as we read through Deuteronomy.  As you read this week think about how well you are living up to God’s standards.  God does want us to live holy lives, but He also wants us to run to Jesus when we fall short.  Take time this week to think about Christmas as well.  Prepare to celebrate the coming of Jesus and the significance of His birth, life, death and resurrection.…

Understanding the Book of Deuteronomy

Today, in the Rocky Creek Bible Reading Plan, we start working our way through the book of Deuteronomy.  This is the last book of the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible.  Deuteronomy is a second giving of the law and the events in this book take the Israelites to the edge of the Promised Land.  Check out the videos below from the Bible Project to give you an overview of the book.  Hopefully, they will prepare you for…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of December 9

We are finishing up the book of Numbers this week and we’ll move into the book of Deuteronomy.  Deuteronomy restates and reinforces the law that God has already given.  Repetition is a good thing.  Deuteronomy is an “expansion of much of the original law given on Mount Sinai” so pay attention and don’t miss what God is communicating.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon.  Please consider the questions below…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of December 2

This week in the book of Numbers we will move from Kadesh-barnea through the wilderness to the plains of Moab.  Despite Israel’s rebellion and complaining God remains faithful.  We’ll discover how Balaam blesses Israel and see how God sovereignly protects and provides for His people.  He continues to keep His covenant and is bringing to pass His promises.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon.  Please consider the questions below…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of November 25

Keep reading in the book of Numbers this week and see how the experiences of two generations in the life of Israel are chronicled.  Numbers 1-14 tells about the generation that participated in the Exodus from Egypt, but they refused to trust God and enter the Land.  After the death of the first generation, the second generation, makes preparations to obtain what God has promised.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the…

The Book of Numbers

Today in the Bible Reading Plan we start reading the book of Numbers.  Over the next couple of weeks we will read through this book and see how God moved His chosen people to the edge of the Promised Land.  It’s a tale of two generations and how the nation of Israel “had to go through the painful process of testing and maturation.”  Go had to teach His people the consequences of irresponsible decisions, and they spent 40 years in…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of November 18

This week we will finish up the book of Leviticus and start the books of Numbers.   Before going into the Promised Land the Israelites took stock of their military.  The names and numbers may not be the most exciting thing to read in Scripture, but “it helps to remember that these were real people who were about to do something very bold and very important – take over the land God promised them.”  The book also contains key rules…

Bible Reading Plan for Week of November 11

We are continuing to work our way through the many laws of Leviticus.  Don’t quit and don’t give up!  “God’s holiness, mankind’s sinfulness, sacrifice, and God’s presence in the sanctuary are the book’s most common themes.”  See the holy character of God and how we should pursue holiness, by God’s means.  This should cause us to remember Christ and what He gave to us on the cross.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups…
