The Bible – A Love Letter
I liked this article and it is how I see the Bible.
But again I need to express the fact that not everyone has the time to spend reading the Bible daily. Times are hard and most of us have a full day’s work ahead of us.
I always thought that is why we paid the preachers. So that we can take care of the work, and they can tell us what God wants us to do. Nowhere in the Bible is it written ‘thou shall read this book daily.’ God knows we are in a mess. Doing double time so to speak. What is His solution? Simply take His Word with you wherever you go, do all you do in The Word.
And no, you don’t have to take the whole Bible, just The Word of God. You know those He spoke, those He wrote, the Ten Commandments. And God can speak to you because He tells us in Proverbs 6:20-23 that His Word speaks to us.
I think the churches have failed us here. We were never told how to hear from God for ourselves. That we can spend hours in His presence and not have to sit over a Bible. But to go about our day doing what we do, doing all we do in The Word.
Oh, and if you want eyes to see, take along with you Jesus’ commandments as well.
May God go with us all.
