Read Your Bible!

?…but the word of the Lord stands forever…? 1 Peter 1:25 NIV
Jana Jones says, ?During the day I take a few moments to unwind by reading the Bible. After seeing me do this for several years, my four?year?old daughter became concerned: ?Aren?t you ever going to finish reading that book??? You could read the Bible for a lifetime and not ?scratch the surface?. There?s no other book like it. For example: (1) No human being would have written to such a high standard. Stop and think of the best person you know. You must admit, even they would have left certain things out, wouldn?t they? (2) There?s an aura the Bible generates that no other book does. Martin Luther said, ?The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me.? Try laying a newspaper on your table at a restaurant and no one will give you a second look. But lay your Bible on it and they?ll stare at you, watch you chew your food, and maybe even take a note of your licence plate when you get into your car. That?s because the Bible creates a sense of God?s presence that forces a reaction in the hearts of men and women. (3) We are changed as we read it. Our core values are altered, peace enters our spirit, joy wells up within our heart. ?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 to what we really are.? (Hebrews 4:12 NLT) The answers you need are in your Bible, so make it part of your everyday life. SoulFood: Lev 24:17?22, Deut 15:7?1, Matt 5:38?48
