THE BIBLE: WE CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT IT
Church family I can’t emphasize enough the importance of the Bible in your life as a follower of Christ. We need to not only have a high regard for it, but also a consistent use of it. That includes reading it every day. This past Sunday, at the end of the service, I shared a simple but effective strategy to reading the Bible. It is as follows:
Find a readable translation. Then, find a starting spot. The gospel of John can be a great place to begin. With you’re Bible and pen in hand, pray and then read at least one paragraph. Read it slowly and attentively. Then answer these simple questions about what you just read.
- What does this say about God?
- What’s it say about me/us?
- What does it say about the relationship between God and us?
- How do I apply it to life?
