Essentials # 3

April 24, 2009

I have been writing about some things that I feel are Essential to a quality spiritual walk. The first two were: Knowing God loves you and prayer. The third thing I think one must do to have a healthy spiritual walk is to read God’s word. Having the word of God is like a gold mine of knowledge, not to mention the peace that you can attain by simply reading it.

There is a lot to be said about the “Word”, I just want to touch on a few.

1. People who claim to follow Christ and do not read the Bible on a regular basis do not make sense. In fact I would challenge how much you care about what God says. If you love Him and know that He loves you back then naturally you should want to read your Bible. When did it become such a chore? (Does anyone else think it became a chore when people forced you to memorize it in Sunday school?) I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

2.We as Christians have been entrusted with the greatest story ever told. Scary isn’t it? Tell someone before it’s too late.

3. After feeling the weight of the gospel, the story of Christ, it should make you want to fall more in love with Him and everything to do with Him. It should work like this… The more you read, the deeper you fall in love with His truth.
