In 2021 we are using Foundations (F260) as our Bible reading plan. F260 is a 260-day reading plan that highlights foundational passages of Scripture every disciple should know.

We recommend journaling using the HEAR method. It promotes reading the Bible with a life-transforming purpose.

HEAR stands for Highlight, Explain, Apply, and Respond. Each of these four steps helps create an atmosphere to hear God speak.

Highlight:

  • The name of the book
  • The passage of scripture
  • The chapter and verse numbers that speak to you
  • A title to describe the passage

Explain:

  • Why was this text written?
  • To whom was it originally written?
  • How does this text fit in with the verses before and after it?
  • Why did the Holy Spirit include this passage in the book?
  • What does the Holy Spirit intend to communicate through this text?

Apply:

  • What does this text teach me about God?
  • What does this passage mean today?
  • What would the application of this passage look like in my life?
  • Does the text identify an action or attitude to avoid or embrace?
  • What is God saying to me?

Respond:

  • Write a call to action.
  • Write about how you will different because of what God has said to you today.
  • Indicate what you are going to do because of what you have learned.
  • Write a prayer to God based on what you’ve just read.
