The Bible Chapter-a-Day program is now a part of www.HisWordDaily.org The new Chapter-a-Day program has its own structure and is be hosted at www.cad.HisWordDaily.org where you may read, study and discuss the Bible chapters. To posts in the discussions, you must register as a user.
How it began
The Chapter-a-Day program began when a friend started emailing a chapter from the Bible every day to another friend who said he lacked the discipline to open his Bible each day. Soon, others were asking to be added to the distribution list. The distribution list continued to grow until approximately 75 people were receiving a Bible Chapter-a-Day. Still others began to relay these messages to other networks of friends and it was also posted to a Yahoo group of Christian cyclists called â€œVelo 4 Christâ€ (Velo is French for bicycle). The direct distributions at that time were estimated to be approximately 200 persons. Distributions to others indirectly is not known. We do encourage you to let other know about this and at least signup for a subscription.
The Chapter-a-Day originator, a leader of a menâ€™s ministry known as â€œMen to Maturityâ€ at Center Pointe Christian Church (Formerly Lakota Christian Church) is in Liberty Township, Ohio. The calling of this group came from the Apostle Paulâ€™s writings in Hebrews1â€¦
â€œTherefore let us leave the elementary teachings about Christ and go on to maturityâ€
As we mature and grow in Christ, Paul calls us to move away from the infantâ€™s milk to solid food. We can remain true to this purpose of helping each other move on to maturity by sharing His Word Daily not only on this site, but also in our conversations with others!
Who knows, you might want to start sharing His Word Daily by emailing it to a friend?
Intro for newcomers (What is it?):
Our Chapter-a-Day program is a â€œhands onâ€ approach to reading the Bible. There are many chapter a day programs that will send a email every day starting at Genesis and ending with Revelation. This Chapter-a-Day program is for people who would prefer to mix things up a bit as to the order books of the Bible are read.
The scripture is hand selected and we will usually read through an entire book end to end. The order may break up the many Psalms into sections. Usually, each book will be prefaced with an introduction to prepare the readers for key points concerning who the audience might have been or the context of the message for that book.
The mix may be about 50-50 of New Testament and Old Testament. Of course since the Old Testament is much larger than the New, the New Testament will be repeated before we get through all of the Old Testament. Our intention is not to read the whole Bible for the sake of checking that accomplishment off on a list of things to do! Our goal is to help each other grow and learn more from God’s word from the Bible.
