Why Read The Bible?

Why do you read the Bible?

I suppose answers vary with individual needs and life’s seasons. At different moments we seek knowledge, inspiration, encouragement, comfort, and guidance.

When I thought through this idea (I actually do that occasionally) I wondered if there was a single, best, right answer. Since The Bible Is About God I was going to offer something profound like “…acquiring a better, more intimate knowledge of God” (thanks Clark).

It’s always comforting to have a nice, tidy answer to such a complex question, even if it’s far too simplistic.

Think You Can't Read the Bible in a Year?

Think You Don't Have Time to Read the Entire Bible in a year? Think again!

I was a bit daunted at the thought of reading the entire Bible together with my CIR friends and family this year. How will I ever find the time? Well, it takes about 20 minutes per day. You can also listen to the Bible in your car, while doing housework or chores.

Hiding God’s Word in Your Heart

Psalm 119:11 says, I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. How can we hide God’s Word in our heart? I memorize Scripture to hide it in mine.

Some people insist they are too old to memorize God’s Word. They say they could when they were younger but not any more. Our memory may not function as quickly as it did when we were younger, but it still functions.

Several steps for Scripture memory have worked for me. Here are a few of them:

  • Write the verse on Post-um notes and put it on your refrigerator, the bathroom mirror, the dashboard of your car, and on your desk.
  • Write the passage on a 3 x 5 inch lined card in a mini spiral notebook.
  • Set a timer on the hour and recite the verse to yourself.

The Runner's Bible Devotional

In the early A.A. days, the days of the Alcoholics Anonymous Christian Fellowship that Bill W. and Dr. Bob founded in June of 1935, morning quiet time, the use of daily devotionals, and looking to God for guidance were required. These were the Christian A.A. days. Basic solutions to the problems of A.A. members were drawn from the Bible. And morning quiet time—Bible study, prayer, seeking God’s guidance, discussion, and the use of devotionals—was the tool used to get in touch with God, thank Him, ask Him, and believe Him.
