Do You Want To Take The Bible Challenge?The Bible challenge!

Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.

I started to read the Bible gradually by being consistent, meaning I read each day when I woke up. Reading the Bible in the same place each day was the best way to do this for me. Do whatever works best for you, but do it consistently.


The Bible challenge is straightforward. Start by committing to read for 5 minutes (or more) each morning when you wake up before eating breakfast. My former pastor Ron Sauer gave me an excellent definition of the word DISCIPLINE; He said it is doing what needs to be done when it needs to be done and the way it needs to be done, no matter how you feel about it.” ~ Bill Greguska


Matthew 22:29  Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.

Why Take The Bible Challenge?

  • Matthew 22:29 Jesus replied, “You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God.
  • “Fewer than half of all adults can name the four gospels. Many Christians cannot identify more than two or three of the disciples. According to the Barna Research Group data, 60 percent of Americans can’t name even five of the Ten Commandments. “No wonder people break the Ten Commandments all the time. They don’t know what they are,” said George Barna.” According to 82 percent of Americans, “God helps those who help themselves” is a Bible verse. Those identified as born-again Christians did better–by one percent. Most adults think the Bible teaches that the essential purpose in life is taking care of one’s family. Another survey of graduating high school seniors revealed that over 50 percent thought Sodom and Gomorrah were husband and wife. A considerable number of respondents to one poll indicated that Billy Graham preached the Sermon on the Mount.” (

Bible Challenge How To Read The Bible And Enjoy Reading It!

When I started reading the Bible, I found it hard to understand and concentrate. Let’s be honest. If you are anything like I was, you will probably think of other things you would instead do than read the Bible. That is how I started, but that is not how I feel today. Consider this; the Bible is the foundation of life and Godliness.
Once you commit to reading the Bible daily, if you are anything like me, you will find that you look forward to it, and the more you learn, the more it will make sense to you.

Bible Challenge Tips to Help You Read The Bible!

  •  Think of the Bible as a gourmet meal for the soul. A healthy diet can bring peace and purpose to your life and help you deal with stressful situations in a way that would please God.
  • Set up a reading routine. Put aside at least 5-10 minutes to read a chapter of the Bible. (it does not have to be an entire section, as long as you focus on what you are learning).
  • Getting up a little earlier or finding a quiet spot away from distractions. (possibly while sitting in the kitchen before you eat) Maybe you read it with coffee, during your lunch break, or before bed. Set a time and stick to it.
  • Expect that when you read the Bible, it may seem hard at first. Before reading, pray, and ask God to help you understand what you’re about to read. Ask Him to show you what He wants you to learn. Study Bibles are also helpful in making you more familiar with what you are reading.
  • Think about three things while you read. What does what I am reading mean? What is God trying to say to me in this part of the Bible? And how can I apply what I am learning to my life?
  • Ask a friend to help you with reading by being a reading partner. Maybe you can go through a reading plan together or meet each week to discuss your reading. Text or email Bible verses, or use a Bible app to “friend” each other and share notes.
  • Read the Bible by topic. The book of James is all about Christian living. The Psalms, a book of worship, can enrich your devotion to God, and Proverbs is full of wisdom to strengthen your relationship with others.
  • Don’t beat yourself up or quit if you miss a day. Renew your commitment, pick up the next day, and read the Bible as a regular part of your life.

Some Specific Scriptures To Encourage You:

2 Timothy 2:15 ESV

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.

1 John 4:7-21 ESV 

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God because God is love. In this, the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

Philippians 4:6 ESV 

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV 

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

Romans 5:1-11 ESV 

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him, we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not put us to shame because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. 

Acts 2:38-39 ESV 

And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”

John 3:16 ESV 

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

John 1:1-51 ESV 

In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

Matthew 28:19 ESV 

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

Matthew 22:29 ESV

But Jesus answered them, “You are wrong because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God.

Matthew 16:18-19 ESV

And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock, I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
