What A Privilege

What A Privilege!

Recently the Lord told me that I received great revelation because I sought Him out of love and not duty!

What a privilege it is to be able to read the Word. Illegal in many countries and yet here most don’t read it. Here we all have the privilege of entering into the presence of Almighty God.

In his book Getting Into God, Stuart Briscoe gives 4 facts that should motivate believers to read the Word:

1. it is through the Bible that we come to know what the Creator of this universe thinks. This is exciting, for it means that people living on a tiny planet in the twenty-first century can know what God thinks about things and what He plans to do.
2. The Bible is the only means of knowing how to be reconciled to God. Paul says it is the scriptures that “make us wise to salvation (2 Tim 3:15).
3. The Bible is the only place where you can get information on what to do after you have made a start in the Christian life.
4. The Bible is the only book that accurately predicts the future. The best man can produce is speculation; the Bible offers revelation. Speculation is the sum of what man thinks might happen; revelation is God’s statement of what will happen!

Reading the Word is NOT a chore! It truly is a privilege! I can’t open it without receiving. Don’t pass it up!
