In America, we are so blessed to have the written Word of God in abundance. But how much do we value our Bible? The answer to that question is reflected in the frequency with which we read the Bible and the role we allow it to play in our life.
The Bible is a unique collection of books. All the books were written by holy men of God. More importantly, God is the Author of each and every book of the Bible. Jesus said, “The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life” (John 6:63). The same is true about the Words of the Bible—its Words are spirit and they are life.
It should go without saying that if a Christian does not read the Bible regularly, he can’t become strong in the Lord. No other book or collection of books can impart life and strengthen us spiritually like the Bible can.
When we read the Bible with an open heart, the Word of God is like a good seed taking root on the inside of us. As we continue to read the Bible, what has taken root in us will be “watered.” Over time, we and others will see the spiritual fruits of change in our life. Every Christian should make the Bible his or her most treasured collection of books. What about you?
