I am always intrigued by the lackadaisical attitude some have toward the Holy Scriptures, which is indeed the written Word of God. Those who often pick it up and try to read it can find themselves not only intimidated, but thoroughly confused and frustrated. Why is this? Could it be that when they attempted to read it they didn’t have the right heart toward God? Maybe they are being cynical or downright judgmental toward its Authors or content in general. It is possible that it was presented to them in the wrong way, or even manipulated to influence them for some evil purpose. Whatever the scenario, God’s Word is just that-His Word! I have come to the conclusion over the last four decades that the only people who have a problem with the Bible, are the ones who don’t want to follow its instructions. They want to do what they want to do, and it clearly convicts them, so they choose to ignore it, or interpret it to fit their own selfish agendas. They dismiss its truths and instruction, calling it folklore, legend, or just the writings of a group of men’s fanatical imaginations. This is a dangerous thing to do, because it is much, much more than that; it is only key to their living a prosperous, victorious life while on Earth, and an even better one, after they die. In 2 Timothy 3:16, the Apostle Paul writes, ” All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God can be proficient, equipped for every good work.” Also, Jesus said in Matthew 4:4, “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every Word that comes from the mouth of God.” It is imperative that we study (consume; ravish) the Word of God, so that our spirit can receive nourishment, just like our bodies do when we consume our favorite foods.
