Practical Helps for Bible Reading


Being changed and encouraged by God’s word is a supernatural event.

When this encouragement happens, God himself is stirring your affections by his Spirit through an ancient volume of sixty-six books originally written in three different languages. Amazing, right?

But also, if we’re honest, it might be a little intimidating if we don’t end up encouraged like we hoped. Sometimes it might even feel frustrating. So then what should we do? A certain answer is not to give up. As Ben Stuart explains, “I’ve never met a strong Christian who does not meditate every day on the words of God. I’ve never met a weak Christian who does.”

In this short excerpt, Ben gives three practical helps to make room in our lives and hearts to meet God in his word. It’s the most important thing you can learn to do.
