Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.
The Bible is full of wisdom to help in any situation.
You can be a Christian without reading, knowing, studying, meditating, and understanding the Bible. But why would you want to? I became a Christian in my teenage years, but never understood the value of God’s Holy Word.
I understand the value now!
I could have avoided so much pain, darkness, and emptiness in my life if I’d understood the value sooner.
By studying it before the adversity comes, you’ll have a better understanding of God and his faithfulness. This will prepare you for any situation that arises. If you’re knee-deep in adversity or even feel as if you’re drowning in it, fear not. God is with you and it’s not too late to start today.
The value doesn’t come from reading the Bible. Reading it won’t change your heart or your life. Meditating on, believing, and doing will!
So, whether you are in the midst of adversity or not, pick up that Bible today and you will never regret it. There is power in God’s words.
But the power doesn’t come from reading the words–it comes from being a DOER OF THE WORD. Mmm…maybe that wasn’t what you wanted to hear? Maybe, you wanted the easy way? God’s way is NOT the easy way, but it is the BEST way!
