Our God is a God of relationships. He is one of steadfast truth, mercy and peace. How do we know this? We have his Word! As we read the Scriptures, God reveals his self, his Son Jesus Christ, his Holy Spirit and all truth concerning God’s love and faithfulness.
Disciples of Jesus Christ study Holy Scripture each day. They spend time in the morning, afternoon or evening reading the Bible and learning the ways of God. Disciples also study with others, so that they would learn together. And finally, it is not enough that we study, but disciples know the Word of God. Disciples continue to study so that they know and understand the message of the law and prophets and apply it to daily life. They know and can articulate their faith guiding others in their faith and learning.
Whether it is group Bible study, peer to peer reading, or simply spending quiet time alone with the Bible, be sure to read the scriptures each day. Take time to draw close to God. His Word is true, it is sure and it is eternal. Learn from it and share the good news of Christ the Lord.
Prayer: O God, thank you for your Word, through which I can come to know you. Amen.
