When we will read bible we will come to know that why we must read bible? It is very important for us to know that what our LORD has written for us in the bible. If we will read bible we will come to know about our LORD and along with this we will come to know that what our LORD wants from us and what all commandments He has given for us to follow. When we will obey or follow His rules only then we can come closer to Him. It is written in Revelation1:3 “Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.” So, it is very important for us read the bible and not just read it but we have to believe it and follow it that is we have to do according to what it is written in it.
In 1 Peter 1:23 it is written “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.” Bible is called a seed because, once properly planted, it brings life, growth and fruit. We must read bible because it is a lamp for us, as it shows where we are now that is our condition that in which kind of condition we are at present is it acceptable to our LORD or not and if it is not then we have to make it as our LORD wants by reading bible, it guides us in the next step as when we will read bible then we come to know the wish of our LORD and His commandments and by following them we can take the path which is right according to our LORD and it protects us from falling as when we will read bible it will guide us and as to which way we have to go and so it is a protector for us; as in Psalms 119:105 “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” When we read bible we can follow our LORD commandments which will guide our life in a right direction and on the right path which goes straight towards our LORD.
Bible is a mirror for us because it reflects the mind of God and the true condition of man. If we read bible and will not do according to what it is written in it then we are like a person who looks his natural face in the mirror and he walks on his way and after sometime he forgets what kind of person he was but if a person reads bible the word of our LORD and do as it says then he and his work will be blessed because he remembers whatever is written in the bible as it is written in James1:23-25 “For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass. For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.” Psalms 119:9 tells us “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.”
That’s why today our ministry is giving the word of our LORD that is bible both Old Testament and New Testament combined as a free gift to all those who wants to read bible and are not able to purchase it due to financial or any other problem. Amen.
