At The Cause Church, we love God’s Word! We believe following a reading program is important for accountability, discipline and for systematic instruction in God’s Word. We have provided the GROW Reading Plan which is a New Testament Bible Reading Plan, and, for those who want more, an Old Testament Bible Reading Plan to take you through the entire Bible in 12 months.

We encourage people to record what God is speaking to you as you read His word. We encourage people to do this by using a “GROW Journal”, which can be picked up at The Cause. We believe that when God speaks to you through His Word, record what you have discovered. Writing it down will enable you both to remember what God revealed to you and to check up on your biblical discoveries. Recording what God has shown you is the way of applying what you see in the Scripture that pertains to your life. Since “God’s Word will change your DNA”, we use the acronym “D.N.A.” to help us record what God shows us in His Word.

But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves.
— James 1:22 NLT


Here are the steps for writing in your GROW Journal each day:

  1. Enter today’s date.

  2. D = Daily reading: Which verse or verses is God impressing upon me today?
    Write out the verse or verses in this section of the page.

  3. N = Notes: What do I notice and observe about this verse?
    Write your observations in this section. It’s basically why the verse stood out to you.

  4. A = Application: How do I apply this truth to my life?
    This is the most important part. Take some time to think about how you can this live out in your life. This could also be a prayer that you write. The Word of God is not given to us for information. God gave it to us for transformation, and that happens through the application of revelation.

  5. Give the page a title based on what God spoke to you.  

Now that you know these things, God will bless you for doing them.
— John 13:17 NLT
