We Need to Read the Bible!

The journey to spiritual growth travels through the pages of the Bible. God has given His revealed Word as a means of spiritually strengthening and encouraging His people. The Psalmist understood this to be true. He prayed, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light on my path” (Psalm 119:105). Jesus would have commended the Psalmist’s song. He taught that His disciples would become closer to God through God’s Word (John 17:17). As an apostle of Jesus, Paul intentionally sought to strengthen believers in their knowledge of God’s Word (Acts 16:5 and Colossians 1:23). David, Jesus, and Paul all recognized the primacy and priority of the Bible. If believers today want to have strong spiritual lives, they must get serious about Scripture.
