As a Follower of Jesus, it’s important to read and study the Bible. That’s because the Bible is the inspired Word of God and tells us the truth of who he really is. If your heart’s desire is to know more about God and his purpose for your life, the Bible is a great place to start.
It’s Important to Spend Time with God Everyday
Hey, we’re all busy, right? That may be the case, but if you can begin the habit of spending time alone with God each day reading his Word, it will make a world of difference in your Christian life. Every day you’ll find guidance, feel encouraged, encounter hope, and discover wise counsel on the issues that life challenges you with every single day.
The Bible is the living Word of God; it’s full of truth and power. You need it. Every. Single. Day.
“And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:22 (ESV)
Growing Closer to God
If you want to become close to someone, you have to spend time with them. The more time you spend—the closer you become. God’s Word—the Bible—is the primary way he speaks to us. So, when we spend time in his Word, it’s the best way to learn how to follow him and discover his purpose for our lives.
