“How we handle the Word of God, how we respect the Word of God, how we live the Word of God, and how we allow it to live in us is absolutely essential to walking with God for a lifetime.”
According to Vic Black of The Navigators, the Word of God is one of the most important tools that Christians have at their disposal to help them walk with the Lord.
The Bible is not just another book. It is completely unique because it is the only book written by God.
“No book belongs in the same place that this book belongs. This is the only book that God wrote and it is truly alive and active.”
As Christians, we should receive the Word of God as if it was God speaking directly to us at that moment, because it is.
“If I have a barrier of unbelief, negligence, or anything else covering my approach to the Bible, then I need to cry out to God to break through that and to really speak to me from the Word to make it come alive like only He can.”
As Christians, we have the incredible gift of God’s Word at our finger tips. Sadly, many Christians don’t understand the importance of daily Scripture reading and have never felt the immense blessing of communing with God through the reading of His Word. Vic leads us through some practical tips in his book .
Do you feel God calling you back to the Scriptures? Ask Him to tear down any barriers erected in your heart that prevent you from receiving His Word with joy and expectancy.
