Read the Bible

Reading the Bible – God’s Word – is key to get to know Him: God the Father, Jesus the son of God, and the Holy Spirit.

Here are a few scriptures that speak about who God is:

Psalm 46:1(
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”

1 Timothy 1:17(
“Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honour and glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

Isaiah 9:6(
“For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”




How does God speak?
Over the next few Mondays, the acronym WORDS will show us how God speaks to us.

Firstly, God inspired the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16 – and speaks to you through His WORD. In Nehemiah 8:14-15 (, God shows them what He wants them to do. And they do it. As you read and reflect on the Bible, you will see what God’s will for your life is and how He wants you to live.

What can you do when reading the Bible to help you hear what God is saying?
Lord, help me hear what you are saying to me as I read the Bible.



“And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of faith.” (Hebrews 12:2 –

Did you see it? The word Author. God writes a story. He writes a book.
That story is about His love for humanity.
You and I get to feature in that story.
Isn’t that cool?

Authors carefully think about the book they are writing.
Likewise, God carefully thinks about the pages and chapters He has for your life.
So, as the Author holds the pen to write, let Him hold you.


We obey Him by meditating on all of the Bible.

Following Jesus means being saved by Him every day as He is our “Saviour” (Titus 2:13) and obeying Him as He is our “Lord” (John 20:28).

We obey Him by meditating on all of the Bible.

In Joshua 1:8 (, Joshua was told to meditate on God’s words. Meditation is like chewing. When I chew food I munch it over and over again until it can be swallowed. When I meditate on the words of the Bible I think about them over and over until I know them well.

Am I meditating on the words of the Bible?
I don’t do it very often, but by the power of the Holy Spirit, I know I will.
