Inspirational Thought of the Day:

Consistently reading God’s word is not mere duty. It will change your life!

Scriptures of the Day:

John 8:31-32
31 Jesus then said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you
continue in my word, you are truly my disciples,
32 and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you
free.”

Joshua 1:8

8 Don’t stop reading this book of the Law, but day and night
think of what it says, so you can be careful to do everything
written in it; then you will prosper and succeed.

Acts 20:32
32 “And now I entrust you to God and his care and to his
wonderful words that are able to build your faith and give you
all the inheritance of those who are set apart for himself.

Matthew 4:4

4 But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People need
more than bread for their life; they must feed on every word of
God.’ ”

John 6:63

63 It is not the flesh that gives a person life. It is the
spirit that gives life. The words I told you are spirit, and so
they give life.

Romans 15:4

4 And the Scriptures were written to teach and encourage us by
giving us hope.

John 14:23-24
23 Jesus replied: ‘If anyone loves me he will cherish my word;
my Father will love him and we will come to him and make him
our abode.
24 He that does not love me neglects my words. Yet the word you
hear is not my own but that of the Father who sent me.

2 Timothy 3:16-17

16 All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us
what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives.
It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right.

17 It is God’s way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped
for every good thing God wants us to do.

Hebrews 4:12

12 For the word of God is full of living power. It is sharper
than the sharpest knife, cutting deep into our innermost
thoughts and desires. It exposes us for what we really are.

 

New year’s resolutions are often broken before they are begun. But there is one resolution that we never want to break – the faithful, consistent reading of God’s word. Consistently reading God’s word is not mere duty. It will change your life!

Don’t believe the lie that it is too hard to read the Bible in a year. Take two or three years, if needed, but getting into God’s word is necessary for us to be able to live a godly Christian life.

I’ll keep it brief today, so we can all get into God’s word. mr-_smiley_face-svg
