Why Should I Read the Bible?

Why should we read the Bible? God’s Word is exciting and energizing. It is even thrilling! Why? Because it is life-changing and heart-transforming.

A Lifeline

Today the Bible is my lifeline. For the first twenty-eight years of my life, I turned to everything but the Bible for help. Ever since the day I discovered the truth about Jesus Christ in the Bible, I’ve relentlessly devoured His Word. My appetite for the life-giving, life-saving, life-sustaining truths in Scripture has only increased as the years have gone by.

Living by The Word

Proverbs 2:6 says, “The LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.” What you read between the covers of your Bible is wisdom for all your trials and for all the days of your life.

Stand on it. Live by it. And teach it to your children every day so that they, too, have the thrill of a transformed life.

RESPOND

Lord, Your Word leads me to the refuge of Your heart. It fills me with passion to love You and compassion for loving my children. Transform me, Lord. Amen.

REFLECT

“For I have given to them the words which You have given Me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came forth from You; and they have believed that You sent Me.” (John 17:8)

Do I read the Bible daily? Is doing so a priority for me?

REMEMBER


What you read in the Bible is wisdom for all your trials & for all the days of your life.
