Why do so few people read the Bible?
I’m not talking about a random verse pulled out to make a point; I’m talking about the book itself, the entirety. This book that’s integral to our faith, it is God’s word and is eternal. It will last beyond the internet, phones, and everything that will ever exist. The bible has been around, unchanged for thousands of years. The biblical approach to life is wise, effective, stable, unchanging, and true. When reading the bible ask; “God what are You saying here – or – Lord, what would you have me to do?” and then listen, He often gives us wisdom that we wouldn’t have come up with on our own.
Therefore, read your bible and talk to the Author as you read. Pray. Ask questions. Finally, listen to His answers and instructions.
Hebrews 4:12 ~ For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
