How Does 5X5=25 Work?

Read through the Bible 5 days a week with 5 ways to dig deeper for 25 minutes a day.


Determine a time and location to spend 25 minutes a day for 5 days a week. It is best to have a consistent time and a quiet place where you can regularly meet with the Lord.


Pause in your reading to dig into the Bible. Below are 5 different ways to dig deeper each day. These exercises will encourage meditation on the Word of God. Try a single idea for a week to find what works best for you. Remember to keep a pen and paper ready to capture God's truths.

  1. Underline or highlight key words or phrases in the Bible passage. Use a pen or highlighter to mark new discoveries from the text.
  2. Put it in your own words. Read the passage or verse slowly, then rewrite each phrase or sentence using your own words.
  3. Ask and answer questions. Questions unlock new discoveries and meanings. Ask questions about the passage using these words: who, what, why, when, where, or how. Jot down your answers to these questions and ask your Pastor for help.
  4. Capture the big idea. God's Word communicates big ideas. Periodically ask: What's the big idea in this sentence, paragraph, or chapter?
  5. Personalize the meaning. Respond as God speaks to you through the Scriptures. Ask: How could my life be different today as I respond to what I'm reading?

If you're not used to reading the Bible daily, start with this easy-to-use tool to study your Bible for 25 minutes a day. This reading plan will take you through all 66 books of the Bible, just a couple of chapters per day. This will allow you to see and dwell upon God's revelation of Himself to His people all year long.
