If you profess Christianity and have access to a Bible but do not think that consistently reading it is important (as evidenced by you not reading it) then I might question the sincerity behind your Christian profession….
I know that might sound a bit harsh and before you flood this post saying, “God knows my heart…God knows my heart” (side note: He does know it but you might be surprised by how He sees its compared to what you think – see Jeremiah 17:9, Mark 7:21-23, and read this blog post), please hear me out…You would not dare miss an opportunity to feed yourself (physically) once hungry, right? Then why do you starve yourself (spiritually) everyday? The Bible tells us that “man does not live by bread alone but every word that proceeds out the mouth of God” and that God’s Word is “our life.” If a “Christian” is not putting in the appropriate time in with God’s Word then, in essence, they are starving themselves of their spiritual nourishment. This is why I would question someone’s Christian profession if they do not read their Word….The Bible makes it clear….you can’t (spiritually) survive without God’s life sustaining Word.
The reason people are getting swept away by all this modern heresy is because they do not have a strong root based on understanding of God’s Word. Many are willfully spiritually malnourished. Brothers and sisters, I implore you….please read your Bibles.
“………that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.”
“For it is no empty word for you, but your very life…..”
