How Often Do You Read the Bible?
Today’s Reading: Psalm 129-131; 1 Corinthians 11:1-16
Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:31-32
Last week, I picked up the USA Today newspaper. On the bottom corner, there was a USA Today Snapshot that was entitled: How Often We Read the Bible. I was surprised by the results:
- At least once a month 53%
- Rarely 22%
- Never 24%
- Don’t know 1%
These percentages imply that the majority of the people in the U.S. are looking for God through the Bible in some way. Many of us claim that we had a "God moment" or a God-inspired thought. God’s spoken word can even be misinterpreted by our own spin or by the spin of another’s interpretation. But when life circumstances challenge those moments, thoughts or other’s comments, we need something more solid. We need something that speaks right to our heart directly. God’s written word is where 53% of us go to seek encouragement, answers and Truth. It is amazing to me that God’s living Word, Jesus, quoted God’s written Word. If Jesus quoted the Bible, how much more do we need to get familiar with the Bible today?
