The Bible is the most-read book of all time. There are many reasons why people read it, but one reason that stands out, in particular, is because Christians believe it to be the word of God. 

That makes reading the Bible an act of worship for followers of Christ, and there’s no better way to spend your day than by reading about God’s love for us! Here are nine reasons you should consider spending a year reading through this wonderful book.



The Bible is full of wisdom, love, and guidance. Whether you’re looking for advice on how to handle difficult relationships or seeking spiritual encouragement after experiencing loss, there’s something here for everyone.


Increases The Faith

For Christians, the Bible is a collection of books that have been important to their faith. When you read through it in one year, not only will you be able to experience God’s love for yourself but also learn more about what he wants from you and how you can better serve him.



As Christians, we believe in God’s word. When you read it in a year, not only will your faith grow, but so will your ability to judge between what is right and wrong when making decisions.



The book of Psalms has been called “the manual for worship,” Reading through these writings can be a way to get in touch with God and his work. When you’re feeling discouraged, the Bible can provide the encouragement you need to keep going.



When we read through something slowly and carefully enough, we begin absorbing it into our minds and hearts. The more information we have about what’s in the Bible, the better off we’ll be.


Spiritual Health

No matter what your spiritual health is like, the Bible can help you grow stronger by finding inspiration and encouragement within its pages. Reading the Bible regularly will allow you to develop a more personal relationship with God through Jesus.



You may not realize it when you’re in the middle of your daily readings, but God is working in your life as you read through the Bible. When we hear what God has to say, it can offer us spiritual and emotional inspiration that motivates us to be better for him.


We Find Out God’s Will

The Bible is full of wisdom that can inform us on how to live our lives. That’s important because it lets us know what God wants from each one of us, which in turn helps guide our daily decisions.



Is there anything better than spending time in peaceful communion with God? The Bible offers us a chance at that peace each, and every day we read it, making this one of the best ways to spend your time.
