Reading The Bible Is Important!!!

Reading the Bible is important to any Christians walk with God. We learn about our Savior, what He has done for us, and what we must do for Him. We learn through the Bible what things please God. We learn how to pray, what and who to pray for. We learn how to resist temptation and think pure thoughts. We learn how to share the Gospel. What would we be, what would the world be with out the Bible?

by Amos Wells

I supposed I knew the Bible,
reading piecemeal, hit or miss,
Now a bit of John or Matthew,
Now a snatch of Genesis;
Certain chapters of Isaiah
certain Psalms (the twenty-third),
Twelfth of Romans, First of Proverbs,
yet I thought I knew the word.
But I found a thorough reading
was a different thing to do,
And the way was unfamiliar
when I read the Bible through

You who like to play at Bible,
Dip and dabble here and there
Just before you kneel a-weary,
and yawn out a hurried prayer;
You who treat the (crown of writing)
as you treat no other book -
Just a paragraph disjointed,
Just a crude, impatient look -
Try a worthier procedure,
try a broad and steady view,
You will kneel in very rapture
When You Read The Bible Through.


  1. Having the Lord's Word hidden in our hearts is vital to the child of God. We must read it daily! We must equip ourselves with the full armor of God!

  2. "I have hidden you Word in my heart, that I might not sin against you"
    Psalm 119:11. (That was one of my memory verses!)
