The private reading of Scripture, for those with access to them, has consistently been a part of Christian devotion throughout the history of the Church. It is also, because of our busyness, one of the first things that we leave behind. Here at Holy Cross we fully believe that we come to Know Christ in public worship and in private worship, which means reading and meditating on Scripture and prayer.
The purpose of the Cross Training Bible Reading Plan is to assist in shaping that time for us. In the pages that follow you will find a Bible reading schedule for the entire year as well as an order for directed meditation and prayer for the week Monday through Saturday. The schedule we use is one of the many ESV schedules that take you through the Bible in a year. If you were to read every passage listed, in one year you will have read the entire Old Testament once and the New Testament and Psalms twice.
