The Bible is chock-full of history from beginning to end. The wisdom we glean by reading it helps us understand the bigger picture and make important decisions about how to live, now and into eternity.
Reading the Bible helps hold us accountable. Through God’s word, the Holy Spirit shines light into areas in our life that God needs us to see. It stops us from getting too comfortable and helps us live more sacrificially.
We know God created the earth, as well as the universe. We know God is beyond time and our limited imagining. But sometimes, we seem to forget this. It is in these moments when we need to cling to Scripture and the promises God makes throughout and remember: It’s about God’s way, not ours.
