Spurgeon speaks on how we are to read our bibles. To read them not in a mechanical “get through it” fashion, but reading to understand…even if it means only reading one sentence a day.
I confess that it is easy to read just to read. To read just to punch your “spiritual clock” for the day to say you did your christian duty and clear your conscience. Matter of fact, that’s why I’ve called this blog “the fooloish galatian”, because my reading was one of my spiritual duties to keep Gods love for me…my outward action to keep something I already had to the fullest.
Anywho, it’s worth the read. Anything from Spurgeon is worth the read for that matter, but the Bible has always been a sensitive spot for me, so I just though it might help someone else.
Here’s a snippet from that post:
“As for you, my brothers and sisters, who have not to preach, the best food for you is the Word of God itself. Sermons and books are well enough, but streams that run for a long distance above ground gradually gather for themselves somewhat of the soil through which they flow, and they lose the cool freshness with which they started from the spring head. Truth is sweetest where it breaks from the smitten Rock, for at its first gush it has lost none of its heavenliness and vitality. It is always best to drink at the well and not from the tank. You shall find that reading the Word of God for yourselves, reading it rather than notes upon it, is the surest way of growing m grace. Drink of the unadulterated milk of the Word of God, and not of the skim milk, or the milk and water of man’s word.”
