Reasons To Read The Bible Each Day

Adapted from an article by Mark Lindley

At the start of each day, there is no way to know all of the challenges, trials, triumphs, and sorrows that we may face in the future. However, one thing is certain: you will have a better life if you read the Bible each day. The following points and scriptures reveal the need, and give us reasons and encouragement to read the Bible each day:
 
1.  Read the Bible to increase your faith. "So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."  [Romans 10:17]. "And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name."  [John 20:30-31].
 
2.  Read the Bible to increase in knowledge. "But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen."  [II Peter 3:18].
 
3.  Read the Bible to be wise unto salvation. "And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus."  [II Timothy 3:15].
 
4.  Read the Bible to know how to live right. "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."  [Psalms 119:105] "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."  [II Timothy 3:16-17].
 
5.  Read the Bible because you will be blessed [truly happy] if you do. "Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand."  [Revelation 1:3].
 
6.  Read the Bible that you might know truth from error. "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."  [Acts 17:11].
 
7.  Read the Bible because it is commanded. "Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine."  [1 Timothy 4:13]. "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."  [II Timothy 2:15].
