“This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:8-9
“For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the Lord, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel.” Ezra 7:10
Dear Reader, It’s been my privilege to pastor Bay Area Community Church for almost three decades. As a result, I have the vantage point of time. I can tell you that those who maintain their passion for Christ and continue to grow have one thing in common: Their relationship with Jesus is preeminent. It takes first place over all else. As a result, they experience ongoing transformation and the life God designed for them. How does such transformation take place? The Holy Spirit uses many things but that which is indispensable is time with God and His Word in silence and solitude. One of the greatest faith steps that you will ever take must be taken daily. That faith step is to prioritize your daily time with the Lord. I think you agree that life is full! There is always more to do. Life’s pressures and responsibilities pile up. And yet, if your relationship with Jesus is truly preeminent, then you must give that which is weightiest first place. It takes a daily faith step to say “no” to other things in order to say “yes” to reading A Chapter A Day. It also entails being misunderstood and even criticized by others. But with that commitment comes the supernatural blessing of God who will always honor your time with Him. That’s the kind of God He is. I can give testimony to the fact that as you spend daily time in His Word and prayer, God will work powerfully in your life. He honors the faith of those who say “yes” to Him. I love the story of Josiah (You will read about him this year). In the Bible, Josiah became king of Judah at eight years old. One day when the temple was being repaired, God’s Word was suddenly discovered. 2 Chronicles 34:19 tells us Josiah’s response, “And when the king heard the words of the Law, he tore his clothes.” He immediately began to weep over the neglect of God’s Word, and he immediately called the people to repentance. Josiah applied the Scriptures and brought spiritual reform to his personal life and all of Judah; thus, staying off God’s judgment. The king stood by the pillar and renewed the covenant in the presence of the Lord—to follow the Lord and keep his commands, statutes and decrees with all his heart and all his soul, thus confirming the words of the covenant written in this book. Then all the people pledged themselves to the covenant. 2 Kings 23:3 Our nation today desperately needs spiritual reform. Such reform comes from people like king Josiah who prioritized daily time with God and His Word. It is my prayer that Chapter A Day helps spark a “Josiahtype” revival in your life that impacts our nation and world for Christ! From here to the nations,

A WORD ABOUT VOLUME 4 This is the fourth of what will be five Chapter A Day journals. Each volume reads through the entire New Testament which consists of 260 chapters. In addition, you will read 105 Old Testament chapters over the course of a year. Volume 1 provides an overview of the Old Testament by selecting 105 key chapters. Volume 2 focuses our Old Testament reading on the Poetical Books commonly known as Wisdom Literature. Volume 3 guides us through 105 chapters of the first five books of the Bible known as the Pentateuch. This volume will walk us through important chapters in the historical books. There are twelve historical books and we will read select chapters from them: Joshua, Judges, Ruth, First & Second Samuel, First & Second Kings, First & Second Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther. Undoubtedly you will have a desire at some point to read the books in their entirety, which is highly encouraged! When reading the historical books, it is helpful to remember that they are divided into three broad units. The “theocratic” books (when Israel was a theocracy) consist of Joshua, Judges, and Ruth. The “monarchial” books (when Israel was ruled by kings) include Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles. And the “restoration” books (post-exile when Israel returns to the land) are made up of Ezra, Nehemiah, Ruth, and Esther. Our journey will toggle back and forth between the New Testament and Old Testament. Kings and Chronicles recount many of the same historical events, so I’ve selected chapters that I believe are most important. Also, I’ve tried to incorporate chapters appropriate for Christmas and Easter which also impacts the arrangement of readings. When beginning a new book in the Bible, particularly one that you are not familiar with, let me encourage you to watch the Bible Project overview of the book. Simply google bible project with the name of the book and you can watch it on YouTube. Also, Henrietta Mear’s classic, What the Bible Is All About, is a tremendous resource. When reading the Scriptures, understanding the historical context is key. That’s why I strongly recommend a resource like Warren Wiersbe’s With the Word, The Chapterby-Chapter Bible Handbook, or the two volume Wiersbe Bible Commentary. Finally, I’d like to point out a new feature for this volume. At the end of the book you will find pages for sermon notes. By writing down the key notes from the sermons in your Chapter A Day journal, it will – in one single place – help you reflect and record what God is teaching you throughout the year.
Final word of encouragement: If you fall behind in your reading, don’t get discouraged. Simply pick up where you left off. Stay the course! You are making progress! We don’t see our spiritual growth every day, but I can assure you that you will be much more spiritually mature next year because of your daily investment! Jesus is pleased with your faith decision to spend time with Him.
INTRODUCTION All of us are called by Jesus to “make disciples” (Matthew 28:19). The first person we are to disciple is ourselves. Jesus says, “A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher” (Luke 6:40). We are to be like our Teacher, Jesus. That happens as we spend time with Him.
A disciple of Jesus is someone who:
• • •
Follows Jesus Is being changed by Jesus Is on mission with Jesus
We are changed by Jesus as we reflect upon God’s Word and receive what He is saying to us, and then respond in faith and obedience. Disciples grow by continually receiving and responding to the Lord.
RECEIVE and RESPOND. That’s the key to spiritual growth.
One of the problems is our lack of time with the Lord and His Word. That is about to change for you as you commit to spending daily time with Him!
There are two simple questions that help us receive and respond: To receive, we ask: What is God saying to me? To respond, we ask: What am I to do with what God is saying to me?
In your “A Chapter A Day” guide, you will find a simple structure that will help you become a self-feeder as you receive and respond. The structure has been adapted from Wayne Cordeiro’s book “The Divine Mentor” and is called the SOAP Devotional Method.
SOAP Devotional Method SC R I P T U R E Write out one verse from the chapter that spoke to you.
O B S E R VAT I O N
Observe carefully what the verse says. Ponder the context, setting, its meaning, tone and purpose. Write down a few sentences or a paragraph. And most importantly, answer the question, “What is God saying to me?”
A P P L I C AT I O N
How does this verse apply to my life? What am I to do with what God is saying to me?
P R AY E R Finish your time in the Word with a personal prayer to God. It might be praise, confession, thanksgiving or intercession. Ask Him to help you apply what you have learned. As a family, we want to learn to pray together in agreement. You’ll find a prayer included every day in this journal so we can unite together in prayer.
HOW TO USE THIS JOURNAL Here are a few helpful suggestions on how to use your journal most effectively.
1. Set aside a specific time and quiet place to meet with God. You will need your Bible, this journal and a pen.
2. Receive and Respond using the SOAP method. Read each day’s Bible chapter. Write down the specific Scripture through which God is speaking to you. Receive by reflecting on that verse, asking, “What is God saying to me?” Respond by writing down your application, asking, “What is God asking me to do?”
3. Title the page. Take a moment to give today’s chapter a short title: one or two words that will help you remember your time with God’s Word.
4. Pray spontaneously. End your time with prayer. Talk to the Lord like you would a friend. Praise Him for His goodness, thank Him for things, and ask Him for that which is on your heart. You can keep a list of those for whom you’re praying in the back of this journal.
5. Pray together with your church. Join with our church family in praying that God would change us and use us.
Mark 1 TITLE:
And Jesus said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you become fishers of men .” And immediately they left their nets and followed him . Mark 1:17-18
Jesus issues Simon and Andrew a simple, straightforward challenge to “follow me.” With that command comes his promise: “I will make you fishers of men .” Without any hesitation , they immediately leave everything to follow Jesus. Amazing! Jesus has been preaching the gospel and saying that the kingdom of God is at hand…and Simon and Andrew are all in .
Am I all in for Jesus? His call applies to me as well . He is asking me today to follow him afresh , to surrender all to him and let him lead. What is keeping me from fully following Jesus? I think it is holding on too tightly to my own plans as well as my disappointment over things that happened this past year. Why would I hold on to temporal things when Jesus invites me into the great adventure of following him? Lord Jesus, thank you for calling me to follow you. I am leaving my net behind this very day to follow you. Forgive me for holding on to my own plans and the pain of my disappointment. I give you my plans and my sorrows. You want to make me a fisher of men , so I’m ready to follow you today in whatever you have for me. P R AY I N G T O G E T H E R Jesus, You are declared to be the Fathers’ blessed Son who has come into the world. We pray that our hearts will be open to receive the gift which is beyond anything we could have ever imagined. Help us to follow You just as the disciples did with their whole life.

Mark 7 DATE:
P R AY I N G T O G E T H E R The Lord doesn’t seek for us to live under human traditions as a means to be close to God, and we know that it is not what goes into our body that defiles, but what comes out in words and actions. Let us keep watch over our words.
Mark 8 TITLE:
8 P R AY I N G T O G E T H E R We forget the many times that Jesus has given us what we need, and then we look at the next problem wondering how it will work out.

Mark 9 DATE:
P R AY I N G T O G E T H E R Lord, the transfiguration of Jesus shows us how the fullness of You dwells in Jesus. His desire to help those in dire need tells us how much He loves us. Faith takes us to the place where all things are possible with You. Help our unbelief.
Mark 10 TITLE:
10 P R AY I N G T O G E T H E R Lord, the childlike faith You desire is pure without deceit and we all need to come to You in this way. There is no way to come to God in human terms but only with faith. Our desire is to believe and be filled with faith.

Mark 14 TITLE:
14 P R AY I N G T O G E T H E R Jesus, Your demonstration of love moves our entire being and we are filled with emotion knowing that the evil intentions of the Jewish leaders came to be.

Mark 15 DATE:
P R AY I N G T O G E T H E R Jesus, our hearts break over the trial and mockery that You endured for the sins of the whole world. You have given us all that we could ever ask or long for, which is Your life for ours. Thank You for saving us with your blood on the cross.
Mark 16 TITLE:
16 P R AY I N G T O G E T H E R Father, there are no words to describe how incredible it is that the tomb is empty. Our lives are forever changed and we praise Jesus with all our heart looking forward to being forever with all believers in the Kingdom of God.
Romans 1 DATE:
P R AY I N G T O G E T H E R Lord, I confess how easy it is for me to look to the world for wisdom instead of seeking You first. Reveal more of Your righteousness to me, so that anything the world can offer would be dull compared to Your glory.

20 P R AY I N G T O G E T H E R God, we confess that we often try to earn Your grace. But Your righteousness is granted to us when we put our faith solely in the life, sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus. Thank You that Your promise rests not on our work, but on faith in Jesus’ work.
Romans 5 DATE:
