Encouragement for your daily walk with God
Every book, every page, every verse, every truth in the Bible is profitable for us. Christ followers know that to become a mature disciple, one must allow every passage to teach us what God wants us to learn.
Being grounded in the Word is essential for stability because we are daily challenged by a secular, godless culture. So, let’s be honest here. It is difficult to live a righteous life apart from God’s Word. Righteousness—living a holy life—is cultivated. As we fill ourselves with the Word, and obey its instructions, God will, by His Holy Spirit, guide us in the ways of holiness. Not only that, but Scripture will equip us for every good work.
Unfortunately, some Christ followers cheat themselves by picking and choosing which verses they will read and study, ignoring other precious treasures. That’s why a daily, consistent, and comprehensive reading of the Bible is so important.
If you aren’t doing so already, I kindly urge you to begin a 1-year Bible reading plan. Here is the general rule of thumb; if you read three chapters a day (Monday-Saturday), and five chapters (Sunday), you’ll read the Bible through in a year. There are many ways to accomplish it from reading it straight through from Genesis to Revelation, or chronologically, or devotionally (there are many programs to help you with this—I highly recommend oneyearbibleonline.com and there’s an app for that!).
Allow the Word of God to permeate, guide, and enrich your life.
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
