This week we are going to be focusing on the “water” that nurtures our faith journeys. I’ll be focusing pretty heavily on our regular interactions with Scripture. We as Presbyterians do not have a very good reputation (sadly, but honestly) for knowing our Bibles very well. Rather than analyzing what has been, its vital to think about how we can change that fact. How do we do it? Simple…read. Yes, its pretty simple to type what we should do, but it is harder to consistently find the time necessary to really get into God’s Word on a regular basis. There are many demands on schedules regardless of our age or situation in life, but if we are serious about the centrality of Jesus in our lives, we need to get into God’s Word regularly. This Sunday, we’ll be talking more about this and I’ll be sharing some ways to help you start, pick back up, or continue your practice of reading God’s Word. In the meantime, feel free to share your experiences of what you do to stay consistent or about the struggles you sometimes have in reading the Bible on a regular basis.
As we read in Psalm 119, “God’s Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path.”
