I love the Victory Bible Reading Plan from Omega Publications. You read through the Bible in one year, you read a Psalm or chapter of Proverbs each day, you read all four Gospels twice per year, and you get to read the Old Testament in chronological sequence.
Now, I have discovered something else about this plan that I love. I don’t know how this could have been devised by the authors, or perhaps it is just an example of the awesomeness of God and His word. But all the readings for each day seem to be linked by theme!
For example, the first day’s reading in the guide is Genesis 1-2, Psalm 1, and Matthew 1. In Genesis 1-2, we have the introduction of the TWO TREES, the tree of life, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. In Psalm 1, we have the introduction of the TWO WAYS, the way of the wicked – which you might say corresponds to the tree of the knowledge of good and evil – and the way of God or the way of the righteous – which you might say corresponds to the tree of life.
Then in Matthew 1, the angel announces the birth of Jesus, who is coming in order to save His people from their sins – in other words, from their choosing of the way of the wicked, from their choosing of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil! There has not been a single day where the correlation between the chapters hasn’t been amazing and jaw- dropping!
