Lou Phillips is taking time to help us explore five spiritual disciplines Christians have been practicing for millennia and why we need them as much now as ever before. On day two, Lou shows us how reading the Bible is our primary way of listening to God.
The Bible is the most important document we will ever read in our entire lives, and we know this. We say it all the time but for some reason, we don’t treat it that way.
We often say we want to hear from God but God’s primary mode of speaking to His people
is His written Word. I challenge us to take Him at His Word and see what He has to say.
There’s nothing magical or holy in the mornings but something that Ravi told me when I first met him was that reading scripture before your day begins is so important because if you don’t start your day viewing it through the lens of scripture, this world will devour you by noon.
Read His Word every day, even when you don’t want to. I promise you, before you know it, reading the Bible will become part of the rhythm of your life and you won’t want to start your day any other way.
Make it personal:
How do you start your day?
What obstacles do you face in reading the Bible on a daily basis?
