God's Book

The day after Christmas 2009, Amazon.com announced that Kindle had become the most gifted item in Amazon's history. With Kindle available at the click of a button --we have more secular and religious reading choices than ever before. But as we pursue knowledge, will we make time to read God's Book?

The Holy Bible still tops the best-selling books lists. Yet our insatiable quest for experiential knowledge can keep us from this source of Truth. The Israelites were not judged because they elevated knowledge, but because they elevated experience over knowledge (Hosea 4:6). Jesus rebuked the leaders of Israel in His day because they had "taken away the key of knowledge," misleading people from the truth of Jesus' words (Luke 11:52). Proverbs 1:7 clarifies our search for truth: "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge."

In your personal reading time, are you pursuing the world's deceptive system of discovering truth? Or are you conforming to the Truth? Whether you read the Bible electronically or by turning its pages, make it your source of knowledge and truth.

The Christian is bred by the Word, and he must be fed by it.
But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. John 20:31 KJV
