When you first open the Bible, it is an overwhelming tome, to say the least. Over time we can start to find our way around the Bible, just like we can learn to find our way around a big city – one landmark at a time. In fact, the Bible gives us a great example of such landmarks right at the start of an important chapter.
Why do so many believers lose their love of Bible reading before Valentine’s Day? Could it be that they are trying to read and study simultaneously? Have you ever found yourself struggling through Leviticus and taking very little in while longing to be in Philippians (and knowing you won’t be there anytime soon)? Perhaps it is time to make a helpful separation.
The Bible speaks of delighting in the words of God. Other Christians sometimes seem to sound so delighted by the word of God. So why do some of us never seem to reach those heights? Perhaps a simple suggestion relating to concentration might prove helpful.
