What is ‘In Sync’ Bible reading?

‘In Sync’ is a chance for many of us to read the same Bible book through a month together.

Why do we do this?

There are many possible advantages to reading together like this, including opportunities to:

  • Begin Bible reading if we haven’t before.
  • Encourage each other with our different understanding and focus.
  • Read with others such as family or friends.
  • Spur one another on with good reading habits.
  • Discuss a whole Bible book when we often focus on detail in our times of study together.

‘I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways. I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.’ (Psalm 119:16)

Questions to consider

Reading the Bible does not have to be an intellectual study. Anyone can read the Bible and by God’s grace understand it. The main thing is that we pray for God’s help as we read.

If you would like some questions to help you think over what you read then the Bible encourages us to ask questions such as the following:

1. What have I learnt about Jesus?

2. What does this teach me about humanity and myself?

3. What has most encouraged me from this book?

4. How does this teach me to love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul and mind? (Matt 22:37-40)

5. How does this teach me to love my neighbour as myself? (Matt 22:37-40)

6. Is there anything else I should learn here to be ‘equipped for every good work’ (2 Tim 3:17)
