How to Use The NIV Once-A-Day Bible, eBook Edition

The NIV Once-A-Day Bible organizes the New International Version Bible—the world’s most popular modern-English Bible—into 365 daily readings. Each daily reading includes a portion of Scripture reading from the Old Testament, the New Testament, a selection from Psalms or Proverbs and a short devotional. This arrangement lends itself to helping you accomplish your goal of reading the Bible and adds variety to your daily Bible reading.

Because the daily readings are simply numbered, you don’t have to wait until the first of the year to begin using your NIV Once-A-Day Bible. Just begin reading at Day 1, and if you read every day, you’ll have finished the entire Bible in 365 days. If you prefer to start reading on January 1, the reading plan on page 1288 will help you keep track of your progress. Either way, you will experience the joy of spending time in God’s Word throughout the year.

Here are the features you’ll find in this Bible:

Daily Devotionals

These short meditations are found at the end of each daily reading.

Getting to Know God

God created you because he wants a relationship with you. He loves you. He wants you to know him personally and intimately, not just know about him. Through God’s written Word (the Bible) and through his only Son (Jesus Christ), God reveals that he wants you to enjoy a life that’s in line with his purpose and destiny for you. He wants to be a nurturing and powerful presence in your life, not just an idea in your head. Knowing him means receiving his love. Following him means following his leadership. And let’s tell it like it is: Accepting that leadership will affect your lifestyle. As you come to know God, he no longer is a concept simply to be believed or disbelieved; he is a living reality who is known and followed along a pathway that leads to freedom.

According to the Bible, until you come to terms with Jesus, you haven’t dealt with the issue that’s most important in getting to know God. In John 14:6, Jesus said, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. Through him, countless millions have come to know the Father, transforming their individual lives as well as the entire course of human history. And Jesus continues to change history—one person at a time. He wants to change your life too, transforming it from death to life. But he will not do so unless you invite him. How have you responded to Jesus? It’s not enough simply to agree intellectually with Jesus’ claims. If you read through this Bible and recognize Jesus as the true Son of God, a man who walked this earth, lived a perfect life, died and rose again from the dead, you must cross the line of faith and receive him.

Choosing to receive Jesus is a once-for-all decision. A process of getting to know God will follow, but you have to begin by inviting him into your life. This seemingly simple decision has huge eternal consequences. You may not recognize it, but your wrong moral choices (called sin) have condemned you to spiritual death (eternal separation from our Holy God). Jesus, who had no sin, chose to die to pay for your sins. When you recognize your sinful condition and accept by faith Jesus’ death as payment, you receive his life, which is eternal. Receiving this free gift of salvation is as simple as saying, Jesus, I acknowledge my sin and your payment for it on the cross. I now ask you to forgive me, and I willingly give my life to you. At that very moment, he will come into your innermost being and lead you on a wonderful journey toward intimacy with God.

Another way to explain the path to salvation is through a step-by-step approach. Many people find this sort of process helpful as they consider the important decision to give their life to Jesus. Here is a brief four-step system explaining why every person needs the Lord, and how you can go about making that decision. It includes key Scripture passages supporting each statement.


Realize that everyone needs to be saved. No one is righteous; we are all guilty of breaking God’s law in some way, and are therefore already condemned and sentenced.

Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God. Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin.

Romans 3:19–20


Understand that there is hope in Jesus. Salvation does not come by keeping laws or being good, but only through faith in him. All have sinned, but anyone who receives Christ can be forgiven and accepted by God as righteous.

But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished.

Romans 3:21–25

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 6:23


Know that God forgives and accepts unconditionally anyone who believes in Jesus.

Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.

Romans 8:1–2


Trust Jesus in your heart, and confess him as Lord with your mouth.

If you declare with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.

Romans 10:9–10

Repeat aloud this prayer (or something similar—what you mean is what matters, not the exact words you use):

I thank you, heavenly Father, for sending your own Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the cross and pay the penalty for sin. I now believe in him and accept him as my Lord. Thank you that I am saved.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Some other helpful passages relating to the topic of salvation:

To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’

"But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’

I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

Luke 18:9–14

Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.

John 1:12

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

John 3:16–18

Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.

John 5:24

But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

John 20:31

All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.

Acts 10:43

For he says, In the time of my favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you. I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.

2 Corinthians 6:2

And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Hebrews 11:6

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:9

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.

1 John 5:13

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

Revelation 3:20

You may be wondering what kinds of practical steps you might take to guide you as you discover your personal path toward knowing God. Consider some of these ideas:

• Ask God to reveal himself to you if you’re still unsure that he is a personal God.

• Talk to people who display a genuine relationship with God—those who obviously love him and who live by a different set of principles than non-Christians.

• Spend time enjoying God’s creation.

• Listen to the stories of older people who have walked with God for a long time.

• Be a lover of truth, and don’t hesitate to raise questions about things many others seem to take for granted.

• Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. You can trust God’s gentle whisper to give you direction. If you lack understanding, ask him for it.

• Read what other believers have said about Christianity. Ask your Christian friends for a list of authors who have inspired them in their faith.

• Write down your questions, including those that arise as you read the Bible, and take them to a person who will respect your search for the truth.

• Be aware that moments of doubts and questions are normal and legitimate as you discover your personal path.

• Be alert to your presuppositions—the things you already believe—and your personal roadblocks.

• Keep a journal of your thoughts and feelings during your search.

• Determine to spend a specified time each day searching the Bible or talking with others, and keep evaluating your progress.

Act on what you decide.

    The Bible part of this volume is pretty standard; the NIV is perhaps the easiest to read of the popular translations, so you'll see "killed" instead of "slew" or "fathered" instead of "begat." That goes a long way toward making the Bible accessible.

    Even if you're not religious, I'd suggest reading The Bible at least once, as it'll help you get more out of literature, music, and film. If you don't want to do a full read-through, I'd suggest the NIV Pathways Bible, also by Zondervan. It includes a variety of reading plans, some as short as 14 days, that'll help you get straight to the parts that are most often quoted or referenced.

    While the Pathways Bible offers several reading plans, this one is focused on just one, which breaks the Bible down into 365 daily readings. A typical day's reading might be two chapters from the Old Testament, one chapter from the New, and a Proverb or Psalm. The whole thing takes about 15 minutes, so you can easily fit it into your day or catch up if you miss a day. By the end of one year, you'll have read The Bible cover to cover, a feat which 80% of Americans and more than a third of evangelical Christians have never accomplished (Barna Group, "The Books Americans are Reading", 2013). Each section ends with a link back to the reading plan, so you can easily navigate from one reading to the next without having to manage a bunch of bookmarks.

    This particular reading plan may not work for everybody, so look around online and think about what you might prefer. With a straight cover-to-cover or chronological reading, it's easier to follow the story, but sometimes you'll get stuck in a dull section for several days, and that can be a bit demotivating. This book mixes it up, so if today's Old Testament reading is dull, no big deal, the other two will probably be better. The downside is that you're reading three books in parallel, each one in five minute increments, so your progress with any one story is going to be slow.
