Expression of the Scriptures

You search the Scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life, and they which testify of me.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. He told them, the Scripture says.... My house will be called a house of prayer, but you're turning it into a gathering place for thieves!
He said to them..... How foolish you are, and how slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! Did not the Christ have to suffer these things and then enter his glory?
And he made clear to them all the things in the Writings, from Moses and from all the prophets, which had to do with himself.

ASK YOURSELF:

How often do you read the scriptures?
Can one truly have a personal relationship with the Father without studying the scriptures?

Do you gain strength from the word?

John 5:39.
2 Timothy 3:16,17.
Matthew 21:13.
Luke 24:25,26,27.

I make it a point to read the Bible everyday as part of my Quiet Time at around 2 a.m. when everything is so quiet. I read the Daily Bread as guide to my Bible reading then I commence with the reading of the Bible both with the New Testament and the Old Testament, one chapter each everyday until I finish the entire Bible, and I do it all over again. I believe we cannot grow in our Christian life unless we have a regular reading of the Word of God everyday as well as personal prayers as often as we can everyday. Then we cultivate a more intimate and deeper relationship with our Creator. Thanks for the post. God bless you always.

As diverse as God has created people each unique and of singular mold (no two are alike)--- and as diverse are the cultures and race of the world... then a personal relationship with God is of many different diverse individual ways too...

...yet not one lesser or greater than the other.

Such effort is meaningful to every person as it is most welcome and precious to God on High. He is the God of Love. He sees the motives or the ways and means through which we express our faith.. but He sets His holy gaze upon our hearts. Because it is in our hearts where our true selves reside - flawed and imperfect yet fiercely holding on to the faith that we know, no matter it be that size of a mustard seed.

And yet He understands and welcomes us just as we are.. imperfect, diverse, different, unique. Just the way He made us. And He watches like a loving Father as we all struggle and seek our way back home to where we all belong -- with Him.

What a MAGNIFICENT GOD we have!!
Praise His HOLY NAME!

I read the Bible daily because it's good. Each day as I take time to read the Holy Spirit speaks through the words to my heart. Sometimes I'm convicted of sin in my life, sometimes I'm encouraged, sometimes I'm overcome with gratitude for the goodness of God.

I think that we grow in our relationship with God. So, someone new in his relationship might not spend time in the Scriptures. But as he grows in his relationship with God his desire for the Scripture will grow. If there is not this growth, one could question how real his faith is.

Hello May:)

This is a very meaningful post.

You know as Catholics we were brought up without reading the Bible on a daily basis.Normally, this is done in the Church and the priest gives a sermon on the reading.

Of course, I read stories of the Bible when I was a student in school and we had a subject called Catechism and Bible History. I scored very good marks the subject. Only in my later years I understood the importance of reading the Bible. I try to read it as frequently as possible but it requires a certain amount of devotion and reverence because it is the word of God. I have seen many people reading the Bible as a matter of habit and daily routine but whether they understood any thing or not is a big question.They read loudly and they read fast and I wonder there is a prayerful devotion in what they are reading.

I can do much more reading of the Bible than what I am doing now. I spend more time reading news papers. I hope better wisdom will prevail upon me.

Best wishes:)

Powerful post and I totally agree! We must read scripture in order to grow closer to God! I always feel strengthen from spending a little time in the Word!

Yes! What a thought-provoking post today! Our spiritual lives will remain weak if we do not feast on the Word of God daily. I find a sense of "Something's Missing" if ever I get busy and neglect His Word. Thankfully, through time, He's helping me develop a habit of daily Scripture reading and study. Just like regular meals, we need to feast on His Word regularly in order to grow stronger in (and closer TO) Him. Thanks so much!
