Reading Your Bible,Constructively

Reading your Bible as a Christian gives you more insight into the mystery of the universe than Moses or King David or Solomon ever had. Reading gives you unimaginable understanding.

We don’t understand “the mystery of Christ” (Ephesians 3:3) through mystic incantations, or mental meditations, or even through bare prayer. Rather, Paul says that it is by reading what he wrote that we can understand what was not made known in its full significance “to the sons of men in other generations” (Ephesians 3:5).

From this, we ought to infer that God wants us to pay attention to the words of Scripture and know how they are being used. So when we come to our Bibles, let’s put off the twin errors of laziness and hopelessness. We cannot afford to lazily drift in the words of God — we must put forth effort to understand what God intended for us to understand through the biblical authors. But even when it’s hard to understand, read with hope, knowing that God through reading his word, God desires us to understand the greatest truths of the universe — and he will help us do it.

  1. Its like you learn my mind! You appear to understand so much about this, like you wrote
    the book in it or something. I believe that you simply could do
    with a few p.c. to pressure the message home a bit, but other than that,
    this is excellent blog. A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

  2. Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    guidance from an established blog. Is it hard to set up
    your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I
    can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking
    about setting up my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any
    ideas or suggestions? Appreciate it

  3. Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest authoring on other blogs?
    I have a blog based on the same topics you discuss and would love to
    have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would
    enjoy your work. If you are even remotely interested,
    feel free to shoot me an email.

  4. Rescue me from rewriting all these from the beginning please =((


  5. I have no idea, will you help me?(


  6. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
