Last Sunday, I preached an entire message about reading the Bible. However, reading the Bible isn’t something we have to do at all. That’s right, I said you do not have to read the Bible.
There are many difficulties in life, but reading the Bible shouldn’t be one of them. Reading the Bible shouldn’t be the equivalent of eating vegetables or running a mile. The Bible isn’t an unpleasant experience to endure. Far from it.
I don’t “have to” but I “get to”
Rather than saying, “I really have to read my Bible,” we should say, “I get to learn more about God through His Word!” “I get to find what I need from the Scriptures!”
You don’t have to read the Bible. No, dear friend, you get to!
“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.” – Psalm 1:1-2
Next Step: Listen to the Sermon “I will be in the Word” from Jeremiah 15:16.
