Basic training in the Bible provides you with a starting point to learn about and prepare your spirit for God’s mission here on earth. Similar to training your body in Military basic training, this plan will challenge you to get spiritually fit in God’s Word. Get this: Spending as little as 20 minutes a day in the Bible is proven to dramatically increase the quality of your relationships and the clarity of your mission.

How It Works

Your training consists of 75 Bible passages divided into five challenges—or sections—of 15 days each. That’s 20 minutes a day with God for 75 days to train your spirit as much as you train your body. It’s hard, but not that hard.

Whether this is your first time opening a Bible, or your leather cover is cracked with use, knowing how to productively spend time in God’s word can feel intimidating. Follow these four easy steps to get the most out of your training each day:

  • PRAY with focus and openness to see what God has for you today.
  • READ the selected section of Scripture slowly. Grab paper or your device and take notes of intriguing words and phrases. Read the Scripture a second time. Write down whatever stands out or comes to mind.
  • REFLECT on what strikes you as you read. Think through the questions provided, and ask yourself: What does this passage of Scripture teach me about God and His values, about myself, and about God’s feelings for me?
  • RESPOND to the passage in prayer. Speak to God about what’s on your mind and heart. Don’t worry if your words aren’t fully-thought out. Next, look for ways throughout the day to live out what you’ve uncovered.

As you complete basic training in the Bible, you’ll gain strength in an advanced understanding of who Jesus is in relationship to the Bible and clarity about how His mission for your life aligns with His Will.
