I absolutely love reading and studying the Bible. It has been indispensable to understanding who Christ is and finding out who I am, as a child of God. That sounds corny when I read it, but it is so true. Do not read the bible out of obligation or because a pastor or friend told you to. Read the Bible seeking to know Jesus, your Lord and Savior, the one who gave His life for the forgiveness of your sins. Pray for a desire to know Christ as an expectant mother longs to know her baby or as a young bride desires to know her groom.
Dear Heavenly Father, may I have a longing to know you and an understanding of who I am in your eyes. Give me the desire and the time, to meet with You through the pages of scripture. In Christ’s name, I pray. Amen.
