“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16
My heart pauses in wonder at the fact that the Bible we so casually toss about is indeed the very words of the Creator of the universe, the One who rescued our souls from death. What an amazing gift we hold in our hands! What privilege we have been given to access this miraculous book!
I have to admit that reading the Bible has become commonplace far too often, just another box to check off in my day. Some days, I have even put it aside in favor of completing something else I deem “more important.”
My heart breaks just thinking of how I have trivialized God’s Word. Sisters, there is no book, study, or sermon as powerful as the living Word of God! Reading straight from the Bible allows the Holy Spirit to minister to your heart in a way no earthly friend or mentor ever could. God’s Word will absolutely change your life!
Romans 10:17 says that “faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.” Reading the Bible for yourself will light a fire of faith in your soul. It will open the door for the Spirit to transform you from lukewarm to living with passion for Jesus. Through this passion, the Holy Spirit will pour from you to those around you. Not only will you be changed, but He will use you as a living example of the powerful, transforming love of Jesus!
Would you join me in committing to reading God’s Word this week? Pray that God will give you a desire for His Word and ask Him to open your heart to what He wants to show you. Jesus is calling to you, my friend, and you will never regret the time spent with Him in His Word!
