Congratulations on Completing the 30-Day Bible Reading Challenge!

30day_congrats

Congratulations, warrior in the Word! You’ve finished the 30-day challenge. We’d like to present this certificate to celebrate your amazing achievement. But this reached goal isn’t just a bragging right, a check off the list, or a trophy on your shelf- it’s so much more…

Did you know that it takes about 21 days to build a habit? If you completed the Rose Bible Challenge, you dove into the Bible for over 4 weeks! Though the challenge ends here, the devotion doesn’t. Continue reading the Bible and pressing in to truly know the Lord in all that He is. Combine your reading with study, prayer, and fellowship for the ultimate journey in becoming familiar with the King of kings and Lord of lords!

Did you enjoy using our one-month Bible reading plan? Well, you’re in luck! We have a One-YEAR plan just for you! Click here for more information.

Did you finish the challenge? If so, leave a comment below with “I finished!” and share with us some of your own helpful hints and discoveries along the way.

30 Day Bible Reading Certificate
As pastors, church leaders, parents, and all of the many roles you have, you might forget the certificate in the busyness of your life.

But let me share a story (its short, I promise) that may surprise you about how motivating a tangible reward can be:

A few years ago, I took a 4-week ministry training course that started at 8 a.m. and ended at 5 p.m. on Saturdays! At the end of the course, I received a printable award. The program took over my mornings, but I was proud that I completed it. It seems silly now, but I printed the certificate and tacked it up on the “award” wall at home (next to me and my husband’s Master degrees)…

The truth is that most of us have enjoyed receiving a certificate. It validates your effort and what you accomplished. Simply printing and handing out these certificates for your church or small group can be a small part of keeping Bible readers committed to the Word of God.

At Rose, we started the challenge with the goal of not only reading the Bible for 30 days. The real goal was (and is) ultimately to connect with God on a daily basis. It is about seeking to hear from God about what He wants us to do, to avoid doing, to imitate.

Because, in the end, the Word of God should not just convict, challenge, and teach you, but above all, it should transform you.

To help you and those teach keep up with your daily Bible readings, we would like to give you our FREE one-year Bible reading plan. We hope it can help give you the tools to keep your appointment with God.

Also, don’t forget that tomorrow is the last day for our Rose Photo Challenge!

Why You Should Make Sure Your Bible Study Doesn’t Become a Habit!

Positive habits are a good thing, right? Surprisingly, researchers discovered that as soon as you start any kind of habitual activity, like making your morning omelet or folding the laundry, your brain goes into “sleep mode,” and brain activity actually slows down.

30day_habit

How can this research help us with our daily Bible reading? We want to create habits with our spiritual disciplines, but we also want to make sure they don’t become just habits. Make time for a spiritual check-in—by yourself or as an exercise for your small group–and find out if your daily Bible readings are still keeping you engaged. You may find one of these tips is just what you needed to revive your daily Bible reading habit.

1. Draw It Out: Most people are visual learners so how about drawing your Bible study instead? Take a Bible verse from our 30-Day Bible Reading Challenge (or any verse or passage of your choice) and simply draw what you think it looks like. You may be surprised at the results

2. Pick a Different Location: Researchers found that the best time to break a habit is when you’re on vacation. The reason? The old cues and patterns are no longer there, and new behaviors can be formed. For your next Bible study, choose a place that’s a little out of your comfort zone. If you normally read the Bible at home, try the park or a coffee shop.

3. Pick a Different Time: If changing up where you do your Bible study isn’t an option, try changing up when you do your Bible study. If you usually do your Bible study at the end of the day, do your Bible reading at your lunch break. If you’re a morning person, try your Bible study after dinner. Little things can make an impact.

4. A Study on Thanks: Do a Bible Study just on gratitude. Pick a passage or parable on gratitude, such the “Parable of the Two Debtors” in Luke 17:36-50 or the “Parable of the Talents” in Matthew 25:14-30. Read through the Bible verses and think about how grateful you are with the things God has given you. Write them down and if they include any particular people, you can always thank them personally for what they do for you.

5. Create a Psalm: Choose from one of the many timeless themes from the Psalms. For instance, you can focus on the Psalms on finding rest and peace in God’s care: (Psalms 16, 23, 46 and more) or those requesting God’s deliverance during hardship (Psalms 3-5, 13, 16, and more) Read through them and notice what words or ideas connect with you most. Then, write your own psalm of finding comfort in God. Try to write free-form: just let the words flow and see what happens.
