Hidden Treasures in Plain Sight

Reading the Bible, for many people, is very intimidating. When I started reading the Bible, it took me a bit to understand.   The best thing I ever did was pray to have a thirst for His Word. God likes to answer those kinds of prayers.

I wanted to give you some “nuggets” to provide insight and encouragement to read the Bible.

*Knowing God’s Word is essential to our spiritual growth; maturity and it equips us with instruments in His hand to accomplish His purposes.

*If you are ignorant of God’s Word, you will always be ignorant of God’s will.

*The Word of God provides power, wisdom, direction, and insight that we would never have on our own.

*Without the Word, you would ask people and material things to do what they have no power to do for you.

*Time in God’s Word influences how we parent, handle suffering and handle success and failure.

*The primary purpose of reading the Bible is not to know more about God but to know God.

*The Bible was written to help you conform to the image of Christ.

*” Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” Psalm 119:105

 

Charles Spurgeon describes the Word like this:

Great peace has they which love thy law, and nothing shall offend them” (Psalm 119:65).

“Yes, a true love for the great Book will bring us great peace from the great God and be a great protection to us. Let us live constantly in the society of the law of the Lord, and it will breed in our hearts a restfulness such as nothing else can. The Holy Spirit acts as a Comforter through the Word and sheds abroad those benign influences which calm the tempests of the soul.  Nothing is a stumbling block to the man who has the Word of God dwelling in him richly.”
