Consider What the Bible Is

May 26, 2020

Read Isaiah 40:6-8

“A voice says, ‘Cry!’ And I said, ‘What shall I cry?’ All flesh is grass, and all its beauty is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades when the breath of the Lord blows on it; surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.”


Reflect

Why does the Word of God stand forever? What is the Word of God?

The Bible is our personal connection with our eternal, loving God. It’s how we hear from our Creator and have a two-way conversation with Him. But as my faith has grown through the years, I’ve had to work through lots of questions along the way. (Maybe you’ve wondered some of these things, as well.)

Why engage God and the Bible daily—at least four or more times a week? Isn’t that a formula? Relationships need daily, consistent connections in order to grow. We grow closer to our loved ones when we spend time with them. It’s the same way with Christ.

Why do some Christians focus on changing negative behaviors? (Sounds like another outdated plan to be moral, not free.) Real faith isn’t about swapping bad behaviors for good ones. It is all about a thriving relationship with Jesus Christ. We all struggle with something, and we all battle sin daily.

Why focus on the Bible? The Word of God is transformational. It’s His living, breathing, relevant way of communicating with us. When the Holy Scriptures are engaged—not just read—our hearts are changed.

I’m not suggesting we follow a one-size-fits-all, ten-step-plan for spiritual perfection. Engaging the Bible daily has made a difference in my life … and I bet it can help you grow spiritually too. It’s meant to be personal, not rigid and formulaic. It’s how we find a deeper connection with God.

 
Pray

Lord Jesus, I want to be in Your Word daily. I want to hear You and grow closer to You. Transform my heart and mind. Amen.

Lord, Help me to desire your word! I am going thru a dry period where I don't desire to read the word? But I want to get back to His word with fervent love

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
Doctrine-what is right divine truth necessary for life & godliness
Reproof-what is not right, scripture exposes sin
Correction-how to get right. The restoration to your proper condition.
Instruction in Righteousness-How to stay right.
