On today’s episode, the guys tackle the topic of the power of God’s word. In Ray’s experience, when you are saved, God’s word leaves you in a never ending honeymoon phase. Value impacts behavior and when we value Christ, we understand that His word is direct communication to us. According to 2 Timothy 3:16-17, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, instruction and righteousness that the man of God may be fully equipped for every good word.” Many Christians who find themselves at a shipwrecked point in their lives end up there because they have strayed from God’s instructions. The same words which spoke the earth into existence are found in our Bibles.
Then, the guys reflect on the importance of reading the Bible every single day, without fail. We often forget that we are soldiers of Christ and our food is His word. Meditate on His word and let that be your nutrients for the day ahead. Even in Christianity, there is a massive issue with Biblical illiteracy. The Bible isn’t just there for occasional reference, but is an opportunity for us to spend time with God. God’s word is an acquired taste and requires discipline and time spent with it to develop the taste. If you are unfamiliar with the Bible, you are encouraged to pick a small book as a starting point and really familiarize yourself with it. Christ is our hope, and without Christ or the desire for His word, we are hopeless. The “care” method for Biblical literacy helps participants comprehend, analyze, reform and enjoy God’s word.
