Helen Cadbury, who started the Pocket Testament League ministry in 1893 as a teenager, desired more than anything that people would just read the Word of God, the Bible. (Helen was the daughter of the President of Cadbury’s chocolates)
Helen said: “If they just read it (God’s Word) for themselves, it will surely lead them to Christ”.
I believe this to be true. It is my prayer that people will read His Word and allow Him to speak to them through the Words they read and in so-doing come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour and Lord. As a Christian, we need to read His Word in order to grow and be drawn closer to our Saviour.
Why not make it a daily habit to read something from God’s precious Word?
“For the Word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires” (Hebrews 4:12 – NLT). “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path” (Psalm 119:105 – NLT).
Have you read the Bible, God’s Word, today?
