God’s word, the Bible, is the primary way He speaks to us. It is the absolute best way to allow God to speak into your life, to transform your heart, and deepen your relationship with God. Do you want to know more about God and His promises? Do you want to hear God’s voice and grow in a real and vibrant relationship with Him? Then reading the Bible is your next step!
“There’s nothing like the written Word of God for showing you the way to salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another – showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.”
2 Timothy 3:15b-17 (The Message)
Just 10 minutes a day!
You can spare that, right? Reading the Bible for just 10 minutes a day can change the rest of your days! It will bring hope, encouragement, guidance, and practical advice on the everyday issues you’re facing. The Bible is relevant to everyone, everywhere, at any time.
While you read, talk to God about what you’re reading and listen to Him as His truth is revealed to you.
“Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.”
Psalm 119:105 (NLT)
