Read the Bible in a Year – October 2016

Desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.
1 Peter 2:2

God’s Word

Just as our bodies need food, so our souls need spiritual food. Without it we become malnourished and weak, susceptible to every temptation and unable to do the work God calls us to do.

Where do we find this spiritual food? In the Bible, the Word of God. The Bible reveals Christ, the Bread of Life and the Water of Life. If we fail to partake of this spiritual nourishment, we will lose our spiritual vitality.

Some parts of our world to not enjoy the freedom we have to read the Bible. But most of us cannot hide behind that excuse. The problem for most of us in not getting a Bible, but using a Bible—actually picking it up and reading it.

Don’t be content to skim through a chapter, merely to satisfy your conscience or because of some long-established habit. Rather, read it as if your life depended on it. Meditate on it, memorize it, and hide it in your heart so it permeates your whole being. A small portion well digested is of far greater spiritual value than a lengthy passage scanned hurriedly.

from “Hope for Each Day” by Billy Graham
