Why Read the Bible?
We build close relationships with people through conversation. It’s very difficult to maintain that close relationship when the conversation dies. The Bible is God’s word. It’s the primary way He speaks to us.
The Bible shows you how to follow Jesus on a daily basis. Reading the Bible allows you to learn more about God, His promises, and allows the dialogue to stay alive.
The Bible tells us the truth about God. It outlines who He is and provides a roadmap for us. If you want to know more about God and His promises, reading the Bible is the next step.
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 may be proficient, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy, Chapter 3, Verse 16-17
Could You Spare 10 Minutes?
Reading the Bible for just 10 minutes a day can change your outlook and provide guidance on everyday issues. It will bring you hope, guidance, encouragement, and practical advice on the issues you are facing day to day.
At Harrodsburg Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), we use the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV). The NRSV is commonly referred to as “The Bible for Everyone”.
