Many people struggle to read through the Bible in a year. F260 is a two-hundred and sixty day reading plan that highlights the foundational passages of Scripture that every disciple of Christ should know. The is a manageable plan that any believer can complete.
How Does it Work?
The plan expects believers to read 1 or 2 chapters a day for 5 days each week, with an allowance for weekends off. The 2 off-days a week are built in so you may catch up on days where you’re unable to read In order to digest more of the Word, the F260 encourages believers to read less and to keep a H.E.A.R. Journal. Here is an example H.E.A.R. Journal Entry .
Memorizing the Word
An important part of F260 is the memorization of Scripture. Each week there are 2 verses to memorize. We as a church will be highlighting these verses throughout the year. If after the end of the year you’ve stuck with the plan you’ll have memorized over 100 verses of Scripture.
While many plans for memorizing Scripture are effective, here is a simple one. All you need is a pack of index cards and a committed desire to memorize God’s Word. It’s easy: write the reference of the verse on one side of the card and the text of the verse on the other. Focus on five verses at a time, and carry your pack of Scripture cards with you.
Throughout the day, whenever you have a few minutes, pull out your pack of Scripture cards and review them. Read the reference first, followed by the verse. Continue to recite the verse until you get a feel for the flow of the passage. When you are comfortable with the text, look only at the reference side of the card in order to test your recall.
