That’s the book for me. I remember singing that song as a kid. Growing up I had quite a bit of exposure to the Bible. I attended Christians schools for most of my early education (until high school) and regularly had classes on the Bible. In fact I can even quote the books of the Bible in order in about 25 seconds. A skill that doesn’t come in handy too often.
But I have found that there is a big difference to knowing information about the Bible and knowing God through the Bible. The only way God’s Word changes you is if you read it often. At first I really did not want to read it. Then someone gave me a One Year Bible and I made myself read it every day. It began to change me. I actually began to love reading it. I was hooked.
Hebrews 4:12 says…For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
I don’t know how to explain it, but if you will simply start reading it every day, I believe that the same will happen with you. You will connect with God in a new way. Your life will begin to change…one day at a time.
