THE REASON FOR BIBLE READING

There is a lovely saying of Martin Luther's about the reason for Bible reading: "As we come to the cradle in order to find the baby, so we come to the Scriptures in order to find the Christ."

Sometimes we will find it almost a talking book as some bit comes alive and strikes us forcibly.  Sometimes we will find it more of a picture gallery as we see what God did in other lives and learn from that.  Sometimes it will be a torch to help us along a particularly dark part of the route.  Sometimes it will be a fire to warm us, sometimes a hammer to break down our proud independence.  Sometimes it will be a meal to feed us spiritually.  Neglect this book and you will remain small.  Feed on it and you will grow.
