We constantly try to promote our blog through our email updates. We want our friends and family to read about our ministry so that they can pray effectively. However, I saw an admonition in a book I recently started reading that got me thinking. It said: "If you have time to read this book today, but have not taken the time to read your Bible, then you do not have time to read this book!" What a powerful statement! Have you read your Bible today?
Did you know that only 16 percent of professing Christians read their Bible on a daily basis? Studies show that each year Christians have less and less Bible knowledge. What a sad reflection on the spiritual life of the average believer.
I'll continue to update my blog. I'll continue to encourage people to read it. But perhaps I should occassionally ask, "Have you read your Bible today?"
