Of all the New Year's resolutions there are, one of our favorites is when people use the New Year to attempt to read more bible. Bible reading, when done out of a love for Jesus and not as legalism, is a helpful way to grow in a love for the gospel and gratefulness for Jesus.
With that being said, we wanted to chime in and offer to you some of our favorite bible reading plans for you to benefit from:
Read from four parts of the bible each day: the Psalms & Wisdom Literature, the Pentateuch & History of Israel, the Chronicles & Prophets, and The Gospels & Epistles. Really helpful if you like to keep it fresh and grasp some of the unity of the bible.

One of the most popular plans, this one takes you through the New Testament and Psalms twice and the Old Testament once.

Genesis to Revelation
If you want to go the traditional route, and just read the bible cover to cover in a year, this is your plan.

Old & New
This one lets you read the bible cover to cover, but with one reading from the Old Testament and one reading from the New Testament each day.

Two Year Plan
If you're thinking you'd like to read a little more casually, this one is set up to take two years instead of one. You'll read the Old & New Testaments once, and the Psalms & Proverbs four times.

Whatever you plan to do, our prayer is that you grow in a love for Jesus by his grace and through the power of his Word.
