One of the most important things you can do as a disciple of Jesus Christ is read His Word.  Many people approach Bible reading using the "drop and flop" technique.  They randomly flip through their Bible and read verses in no certain order.  This creates a very confusing experience while reading the Bible where everything seems disjointed and hard to understand.  As an alternative, consider using one of these systematic Bible-reading plans.  Each plan is different and will require varying degrees of time commitment to complete each day.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.

2 Corinthians 5:17-18
