SPIRITUAL GROWTH – DAY 20

JKBcircle THE WORD OF GOD

I read the Bible everyday and I read about the Bible everyday! It’s a great life actually- I get to do what I love to do so each day when I go to work, it never seems like work. Of course there is a good bit more to ministry than Bible study but without the Word I would be useless. Imagine a family coming to plan a funeral and there was no Bible- what could I say? If a couple was having marriage problems and I could offer no words from God, what authority would my opinions carry for guidance? None. If I speak to an unbeliever who is wondering if there is a God, and I had no Bible, what good would I be? I would be as confused as the one I was trying to help! THE BIBLE IS THE HEART OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE-BECAUSE NOTHING ELSE REVEALS TO US THE MIND AND HEART OF GOD. ~jkb
