The Word of God.

The Word of God.
Today there is more than one bible in most homes. It is the most publised and purchase book in the world. We had a big family altar bible in our hallway. It was on a stand and display for all to see. But no one ever used it. It was for show only. As a child, I would look at the pictures in it. I liked the stories of King David. It was an illustrated version. When I recieved Jesus as savior, I went home and grabbed that family altar bible and opened it up. I read a scripture to my mother and father. My dad said get the hell out of his house. I came back the next day and did the same thing. My dad said the same thing. I did this for 2 weeks, before my dad finally realized that I had changed and began to listen. I was 28 years old and had never read the bible. I began to read intently. I had a bible in my home, one in my car and one on my desk at work. I read so much that when I stopped at traffic lights, I would read my bible. I read the bible until God would stop me and explain what I read. It took me 25 years to read the bible through twice. Because God explained to me what the bible meant. I did word studies. That is where I used an concordance to look up words like faith, hope, healing or deliverance. I studied and studied to show myself approved of God. What happened is I began to see who God is. The picture of Jesus became clearer and clearer. Until I could see Him wherever, And another affect of my studies, is that I hear God’s voice clearly. Did you know that God speaks to everyone? Reading your bible is the only way that you will find out what and who God is. It’s also how you will find out what God’s plan is for your life. It’s important for your spiritual life. So read your bible everyday.
