Back to the Bible!

One of the quickest things to be forgotten off the to do list is good old bible reading. Too many of us see bible reading as an optional extra when we have time rather than a necessary part of our daily lives.

If you were to really make the bible apart of your life and follow it to the letter, how different would your life look? There was a researcher i heard recently on TED.com who decided to read and follow the bible for 12months just to see what it would be like. He grew a beard and wore a tunic and committed himself to some bizzare old testament rituals but didn’t appear to embrace the spirit behind the words he as reading.

For the bible to come alive in you, you have to hear what the Spirit is saying in the text. This requires more than a cerebral approach to reading scripture, it requires a heart to connect with God in faith.

We need to return to the bible and allow the spirit of God to download his thoughts and intentions for our lives.

Lead the Change!
