Join me as we awaken our hearts to God’s Love & Truth! We’ll walk through the book of Luke together to help you discover who Jesus says He is, what He does and who we are in light of Him.
Often we can go through the day forgetting that we were created for more than just doing. When we take a few minutes in our day to pause and lean into God’s presence and reflect on His Word this reminds of what we were created for and that is to glorify Him.
St. Augustine is known for saying, “Our hearts our restless until they find rest in you.” Our hearts were created to be fully satisfied in His presence. So spend the next 24 days reading through the book of Luke with me discovering Jesus and reconnecting with Him.
On March 9th we’ll kick off our Awaken: 24 Days of Discovering Jesus through the Book of Luke! I encourage you to read through the book in various ways depending on where you’re at in your study of God’s Word and the season of life you’re in. Each day you’ll read 1 chapter until we end at the resurrection on Easter weekend. Isn’t that a lovely way to end our time!
Different Ways to Walk Through the Book of Luke
How to join?

When you open your Bible, God opens His mouth. Mark Batterson
Figure out your comfort level with the Bible and the season of life you’re in and then dig into reading the book of Luke. There are so many ways to read God’s Word and this is one of the simple ways that I have developed to help our family walk through a book of the Bible together. I’m showing you the basics of the inductive method which you can expand upon but I’m only covering the foundational steps.
Novice– If you’re new to reading the Bible I recommend you simply start by praying and asking God to guide you through your reading. Then spend 5 minutes a day reading or listening through the chapter for that day. You can take a picture of the calendar below and keep it on your phone to remind you what chapter you’re supposed to be on for that day. If you get behind don’t worry about it just keep reading. I’ve given you the weekends for catch up reading. Each day you only have 1 chapter.
(Optional: I highly recommend you read the whole book in one sitting. This will give you an overall understanding of the book)
When you’re done reading then jot down the answer to these 3 questions:
- What did I learn about God, Jesus and/or the Holy Spirit?
- What is the Author telling the people at that time?
- How does God want me to respond?
This should take you around 10-12 minutes.
Growing– If you’re not new to reading the Bible and would like to grow in your study of God’s Word then follow this plan. Start with prayer then read or listen to the whole book of Luke before getting started. This will give you an overall understanding of the book before you dive into it chapter by chapter.
Then read or listen to the chapter for that day and answer the questions on the FREE printable that I’ve shared below:
- Observe: What do I see?
- Understand: What does the text say?
- Respond: How should I respond?
You can download and print out the free sheet above by going HERE you’ll then get an email with access to all of my free printables. This is what I will use to walk through Luke but I will to use it as a template and jot down my answers in a notebook.
This should take you around 25-35 minutes.
Experienced – If you’re an experienced reader then do all that I mentioned in “growing” and make sure you’re reading the whole book of Luke a few times. Plus, feel free to look up words, other translations and cross-references.
This should take you around 45 minutes or more.
Spending time in God’s Word is an investment worth making that will continue to not only give you life but also those around you.
