Just Read It

Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path. —Psalm 119:105

The amount of information available to us each day is overwhelming. The sheer number of books, blogs, articles, and Pinterest ideas often clutter the information that’s truly life-giving: God’s Word.

It feels like a hard choice to pick up your Bible when a world of new information is being put out as fast as you can hit refresh. Learning to say no to new for the sake of old, timeless truth is a discipline we need to learn.

And while Bible-reading plans and methods are good, at the end of the day you just have to sit down and read it. It’s not super spiritual; it’s just simple.

Reading the Bible changes you. It’s not a one-time read but a lifelong journey of knowing God through whom He has revealed Himself to be through His Word. No greater goal is worth pursuing: to know God and make Him known. Knowing the Bible isn’t the end goal but rather the tracks on which the train must travel to reach the destination of knowing God.
