STMA STMA : Cornerstone Bible Reading Method

This idea is not original - I’ve seen it presented at least twice, by two different people. However, I couldn’t (easily) find it on Google, so I wanted to put it here anyway. I wrote last week that I’d finished the Bible and that I was thinking that maybe reading the Bible straight through more than once would be less than productive. So here’s the method I intend to use.

Ephesians 2:19-20 says,

So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God’s household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone….

At first glance that doesn’t seem to mean much as far as reading our Bibles, but it gives us a method of looking at our lives - for building ourselves up, as we in turn are built up in the temple (Ephesians 2:21-22). It boils down to three things.

So what does that look like when applied to Bible reading? Here are two ideas.

And now, a nifty picture that will explain everything you just read, but with twice the clarity and half the time.
