Reflecting on the Word is a transformative habit. Here’s a reading plan through the letter of 1 Peter to help guide your reading, meditation, and prayer.

Make 15 minutes a day to go deeper. Here are five key questions to reflect on as you read each day:

1. What does this passage teach about God?

2. What does this passage teach about us?

3. What does this passage call me to do?

4. How will I obey this passage?

5. Which verse will I memorize this week?
