What are you reading these days?

November 4, 2008

I was reading an article recently on the subject of spiritual formation and came across an amazing statement.  It seems that after several recent studies at Willow Creek Community Church (Bill Hybels) that the number one factor in spiritual growth is consistent Bible reading.  Rather than taking various classes and taking part in small groups, simply reading the Bible will have a greater impact on growth.  Of course, the Bible is the only book you and I can read that is actually “living and active” (Hebrews 4:12)

So I would like to ask you a question.  What have you been reading lately?

    I like the quote because is is true! I read (skim) about a book a week and read the Bible everyday. My plan is the Proverb that corresponds to the day of the month (today 4th), Five Psalms, OT passage and NT. The Psalms for praise, Prov. for wisdom, OT for instruction, NT for Jesus.

    Bible. Nothing else. Bible studies are OK, but nothing has made the BIGGEST different but the Bible.

    Oh…well…if you count my text books….I read the Bible the most, and then my school books. 😉

    The Bible… the Proverb of the day, we have been trying to read through Job because the old testament in my Bible is getting a little dusty, our sunday school lesson for the day and Clifford the big red dog or cat in the hat! Wow I am cultured!

    Philippians, Job, Revelation also several devotionals ” Study to show thyself approved unto God, ( not man) a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” II Timothy 2-15. We have to Pray, Study & Apply the word to our life daily.
