7 reasons to read your Bible daily
Dear Christian, as soon as you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal Savior, you entered into a spiritual war with the Devil and demons. You are a combatant in the army of Jesus Christ. Your battles are not physical, but spiritual. In the natural a soldier carries a gun as his major weapon. For Christians, our gun is the Bible, which is the Word of God. Just as soldiers carry out drills everyday, Christians must read the Word of God everyday. Below I give 7 reasons to read your Bible daily.
1. The Word of God in the Bible is God’s voice to you.
When you read the Bible, it is actually God talking to you through the Scriptures.
2. The Word of God is His instruction to you for a righteous living.
“Get [skillful and godly] wisdom! Acquire understanding [actively seek spiritual discernment, mature comprehension, and logical interpretation]!
Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth.
“Do not [a]turn away from her (Wisdom) and she will guard and protect you;
Love her, and she will watch over you. Proverbs 4:5-6
3. The Word of God is His light shining the pathway leading you to Heaven.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.” Psalm 119:115
4. The Bible has many promises God has specifically for you.
“For the word of God is living and active and full of power [making it operative, energizing, and effective]. It is sharper than any two-edged [a]sword, penetrating as far as the division of the [b]soul and spirit [the completeness of a person], and of both joints and marrow [the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and judging the very thoughts and intentions of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 AMP
6. The Bible has the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
7. Reading the Bible builds your faith in God.
“So then faith cometh by hearing,
and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17 KJV
