Reading the Bible more is one of the most common resolutions for Christians heading into 2019. But statistics show that 80% of new year’s resolutions fail by mid-February.

Maybe this has been your experience. You find a new reading plan, you try harder. But by springtime, that same feeling of guilt and failure is back.

How about trying something different?

This year, Immerse can help you accomplish your Bible reading goals. Here are a few tips for getting started:

•   Start small. Setting out to read the entire Bible in a year is admirable. It’s also really difficult. Try starting with a smaller goal, like reading the New Testament in 8 weeks or 16 weeks.

•   Use a different Bible. Each volume of Immerse: The Reading Bible was crafted with one goal in mind: to provide the best reading experience possible. If you’re trying to create a habit of reading the Bible, it helps to use a Bible made for reading.

•   Don’t do it alone. Group support gives a huge boost to the odds of achieving your goals. So how about starting an Immerse group? Get a few friends, neighbors, or family members who will commit to a reading and discussion schedule. Having a community of encouragement and accountability will not only help you stick to your Bible reading, it’ll make it much more enjoyable and enriching
