As we all travel through our personal life’s journey, it’s important to collect the teachings along the way. Learning is a continuous journey in itself, through which we build on all the things we have already experienced and come across new and interesting challenges. As believers in Christ, the Lord expects us to read the bible to obtain faith for this life’s journey.
The Bible is the greatest book ever written. In it, God Himself speaks to us. It is a book of divine instruction. It offers comfort in sorrow, guidance in perplexity, advice for problems, rebuke for our sins, and daily inspiration for our every need.
The Bible alone truly answers the greatest questions that men of all ages have asked: Where have I come from? Where am I going? Why am I here? How can I know the Truth? For the Bible reveals the truth about God, and explains the age-old problem of sin and suffering.
The Bible is not an end in itself, but is a means to the end of knowing God and doing His will. The apostle Paul said in 2 Tim. 2:15(KJV) Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. God has given us the Bible in order that we might Him and do His will here on earth.
The very best way to study the Bible is simply to read it daily, with close attention and with prayer to see the light that shines from its pages. To mediate upon it, to continue to read it until somehow it works itself, its words, its expressions, its teachings, its habits of thought, and its presentation of God and His Christ into the very depth of one’s being.
My God provide you Grace for your journey.
