Why I keep reading and re-reading the Bible (2)
Continuing from yesterday’s post here are the other four reasons I keep re-reading the Bible:
5. The Bible instructs me in how to live.
Psalm 119:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.
6. It informs, assures, and reminds me of God’s promises to me.
2 Peter 1:3-4 His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.
7. It warns me of spiritual danger.
Proverbs 27:12 The prudent sees danger and hides himself, but the simple go on and suffer for it.
8. It is the foundation of life and of my life. While I go through various seasons of life, God’s word keeps me centered on the things that never change and the One who never changes.
Psalm 119:89 Forever, O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens.
If you keep on reading and re-reading it, what are your reasons? What can you add to this list?
