Came across a new Bible reading plan called One-2-One.
It appealed to me because it’s tuned to new believers. First of all, I am passionate about helping people who don’t know Christ come to know him and then helping them get established, growing, and sharing their faith. Second, throughout my walk with Christ I have needed to re-establish focus by kind of starting over—pretending I’m a new believer and going through “new believer” things. And here’s a Bible reading plan for new believers, all of 25 days long.
I like the plan’s overview:
One-2-One was written as a simple tool to aid in personal follow-up and discipleship. It’s a guide. It cannot make a disciple, but it can help you make one. Most importantly, it helps a new disciple get the right start.
Day 1 has two readings, both of them foundation verses for getting established in Christ and becoming a Christ-sharer, 2 Timothy 2:2 and Mark 1:17.
Okay, but here’s what blew me away. There’s an “Additional Content” button. So I click on it and a personal story from the plan’s author pops up and promptly blows me away. It’s a vivid accounting of how the author got imprinted, first with the good news of Jesus, and then with a life purpose of making disciples.
Even if you don’t do the 25 days, I heartily recommend looking up the plan and reading the story. For some of you, it will be a life-changer. For others, maybe an affirmation of something you’ve been pursuing for a long time.
I’m gonna continue with the plan for the whole 25 days, and I’ll let you know my impressions. If it’s as good as I suspect it is, I’ll be buttonholing everyone I know to go through it and consider what it has to teach them.
Meanwhile, I think this is going to be fun!
