Read the Bible

15 04 2009

As Christians, we read the Bible because we:

  1. Believe it’s the inspired Word of God
  2. Want to be transformed by the renewing of our minds
  3. Want to think God’s thoughts
  4. Understand right thinking leads on to right living
  5. Want to know the gospel and its implications
  6. Want to be wise
  7. Want to be holy
  8. Want to be conformed to the Lord Jesus
  9. Need to know we’re not being duped with false teaching
  10. Desire to find out more about what God has for us now and in future

There are a few reasons for not reading our Bibles:

  1. We don’t have one
  2. We’re in a coma
  3. We can’t read
  4. We’re in extenuating circumstances and it grieves us that we can’t read it
  5. We’re dead
