Have you ever heard that expression? I have. It means that Scripture exposes truth and teaches us things about ourselves that we never knew before. It shows us God’s love for us, His people.
Whatever you’re going through in life, the answers are in the Bible. It is the “Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.” We can have full confidence in God’s Word to us. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work” (2 Tim. 3:16-17).
I challenge you to put God’s Word to the test. Try reading it consistently and thoroughly from cover to cover. Make notes about it. Write in the margins. STUDY the Bible. If it helps keep you motivated, follow a Bible-reading plan. Reading the entire Bible in a year is very doable, as long as you do it consistently. Believe me- you will not ever regret it!
Here are some great Bible versions which I have inherited and endeavour to complete or have already read through:
- New Living Translation
- English Standard Version
- New International Version
- John C. Hagee Prophecy Bible
- Revised Standard Version
- The Amplified Bible
- The First Scoffield Reference Bible
Some folks are still keen about the King James Version of the Bible and while it is not a staple of my Scripture-reading, I love to refer to it occasionally as the language and descriptions in that version are so very rich! Happy Bible-reading, all.
