“Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me.”
As Christians we have a natural longing to know more about Jesus Christ and to have a closer relationship with Him. The only way that we can grow in Him is to make it a priority to be in His Word every single day.
Why? For one specific reason.
The Bible is our only certainty. There is nothing that is for sure in our lives except the Bible and death. We never know what waits around the corner. We make plans for something two months in the future, but yet we don’t know what will happen between now and then. There is one certainty in our lives and that is the Bible and the words of Jesus. In Matthew 24:35, Jesus says, “Heaven and Earth shall pass away but My words will never pass away.” The Bible is the only reliable truth that we have. Men’s various ideas and theories will vary and go out of date, but God’s Word will never change. It is the only factor in our lives that we can put absolute confidence in. His Word is the only unchanging, unshifting rock that we can place out full trust in.
Well I know that was short, but what else really needs to be said?
My encouragement to you this week is to be in God’s word at least 20 minutes each morning. I hope and pray that you will come to a closer relationship with Christ as you do so.
