Make Bible Reading a Priority!

All this year we are urging and exhorting you to get into the Word of God and get the Word of God into you!

 

If you’re following the Legacy Bible Reading Plan, you are getting very close to the book of Ecclesiastes, since this month we are reading Job, Ecclesiastes, and the Song of Solomon. I finished Job and am now in Ecclesiastes.

 

Ecclesiastes is a profound book because it’s written by King Solomon, who reigned at the height of Israel’s glory. He was the wisest, the richest, and the most influential king in the entire history of Israel. His wisdom and the glory of his kingdom are world-renown.

 

If anyone had it all, Solomon did; yet, he still declared that such is empty. More specifically, trying to be happy apart from God is empty. He looks at all life under the sun from the human perspective and declares “It is empty.” Whether power, popularity, prestige, or pleasure, nothing can fill the God-shaped void in the life of a human being—only God can.

 

When one sees life from God’s perspective things are different. Life takes on meaning and purpose if you know God. Eat, drink, rejoice, do well, and live joyfully; however, fear God, and keep his commandments, and in doing so skepticism and despair will melt away, because life will be viewed as a daily gift from God. Don’t miss God’s immortal words. He’s speaking to you. Are you listening?

 

We have a lot of resources to help you get into the Word of God and, get the Word of God into you. Some will say “I just don’t have time.” But you have time to eat, you have time to sleep, you have time to comb your hair if you’ve got hair. It’s not a matter of time, it’s a matter of priority.
