Today is a Great Day to Start Reading the Bible

Bible Reading

June 2 might not naturally seem like the day to start a daily Bible reading program, but if you're not in the habit of feeding yourself with God's word, TODAY is a great day to start!

"Day by Day" is our theme for 2016 at Laurel Canyon. To help us grow in our understanding, devotion, and love, we have a daily Bible reading plan that takes us on a journey through all sections of God's written revelation.

  • Each Sunday we read a psalm (to lift our hearts in worship)
  • Each weekday we read a chapter from the Gospels (to fix our eyes on Jesus), a chapter from the Book of Acts or one of the New Testament epistles (to refresh ourselves on what it means to be followers of Jesus), and a chapter from the Old Testament (to expand our knowledge of God’s great plan to save mankind)
  • Each Saturday we read a chapter from Proverbs (to grow in wisdom).

Yesterday (June 1), we read the last chapter of the Old Testament. Today (June 2), we begin in Genesis--the book of beginnings. We even have a fresh New Testament letter to begin today--The Letter of Paul to the Colossians.

“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matt 4:4). Those were our Lord’s words. Let’s take them seriously. Today is a great day to start!
