Daily Devotions: Walking Daily in the New Testament and Proverbs
Make Your Daily Devotional Reading Simple and Organized.
The New Testament gives you an up-close-and-personal glimpse at the life of Jesus.
The Gospels present a testimony of the miracle of His birth, the impact of His life, and the power of His death & resurrection.
The succeeding New Testament books offer a deeper reflection of Jesus Christ and the ministry we, as His followers, are called to.
The book of Proverbs is known as the “Book of Wisdom” because it provides instructions on how to live happily, successfully, and victoriously. It is jam-packed with tips, advice, and insight that if applied can change your relationships, attitudes, and life.
The Plan is Simple
There are 89 chapters in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. By reading one chapter of the Gospels each day, and then two chapters of the rest of the New Testament (Acts – Revelation) for a total of three chapters per day, you will go through the New Testament in just 89 Days.
This plan is called "The cell rule of Optina." The monks of the Optina Monastery enter into a daily Scripture discipline: one chapter from the Gospels and two chapters from the rest of the New Testament, reading daily in order beginning with the book of Acts and ending with the last chapter of Revelation.
By following this plan, Matthew 1 and Acts 1-2 are on the first day, and then the last gospel, John 21, is read on the very same day as Revelation 21-22.
I have added a slight twist by including a section from the book of Proverbs with each day’s reading.
