Each year millions of Christians make reading the Bible one of their New Year Resolutions. This is one of the best and most life changing of all resolutions! If you are one of the many who resolved to spend more time in God’s Word this year I encourage you to do so! Don’t quit, become discouraged or allow your resolve to be tempered! We are 19 days into the new year and many folks have already failed or completely given up on the proposed changes for their life. Don’t be one of them! You really CAN have a radically changed life for as little as a 15 minute investment in God’s Word each day!
Reading God’s Word has MANY benefits. Our knowledge of God’s revelation is the first step to the building up of our faith. If you want a deeper, stronger faith in God you MUST know more about Him! One of the best and most readily available ways to do this is to spend time in God’s Word…the Bible!
Psalms 1 teaches that the person who meditates upon God’s Word day and night is blessed (happy). Most of us want a happy life! The fast lane to such living is found in a mind wrapped around God’s Word.
So, what is your plan for spending time in God’s Word in 2015? It’s not too late to resolve to spend time (or more time) daily in the God’s Word.
