Reading the bible- why we should

I know I haven't blogged in awhile( I'm trying to get back in the habit) but I've really felt the purpose of this post laid on my heart. It's so easy to get caught up in our routines and busy schedules and neglect our time with God. We have so many things to do and after all we go to church on Sunday's right? When we neglect our time spent with God in his word we neglect our relationship with him. One of my favorite Bible verses is Matthew 4:4 ( Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.') God's word is our bread - our substance, and just like food it should not be forgone. John 15:10 says this - If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Father's commands and remain in his love. God's commandments are are laid out for us in the Bible. So if your not in the habit of reading the word I would encourage you to pick a specific time of the day to stick to every day. You don't have to read a lot to experience the power of God's word.

God Bless,
