Why Read the Bible?
“I’m a busy person with a lot to do. Why should I spend time reading the Bible? I don’t have time to do all I need to do as it is.”
“I already believe in Jesus Christ. I’ve already heard the Gospel and I’ve already read the New Testament!”
“How will the Pantano Bible Reading plan help me?”
The most influential thing we can do to experience spiritual growth and closeness with God is spending consistent time reading the Bible. The Word of God is living and active and sharper than a two-edged sword (Hebrews 4:12). God’s Word is alive! The more you read it, the more it will reveal itself to you.
One of the best ways to know God better is spending time hearing what He has to say. The Bible is His message to you. If you want Him to listen to what you have to say, you should also listen to what He has to say.
Although God can also speak directly to your heart, you need to know His written Word so you can judge whether God is speaking to you, or the enemy is trying to deceive you. God will not love you more because you read the Bible. It’s for your benefit — not required to make God love you. Prayerfully reading the Scriptures provides a powerful defense against being misled.
Our Bible Reading Plan is designed for someone with a busy schedule and includes resources for those with more time to dig deeper into the readings. Enhance your spirituality and your connection to God through developing a daily habit of reading the Bible through the Pantano Bible reading plan!
