《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “You study[c] the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me.” (John 5:39)
Meditation one: What is the purpose for you to read the Bible? It has something to do with your attitude of reading. The Bible, regardless the New or the Old Testament is a testimony to Christ. If Bible reading is for the purpose of supporting one’s own “theological” perspective or to use God’s words to uphold one’s own viewpoint, then you are treating the Bible as a worldly religious book, which has nothing to do with your life and spirit.
Meditation two: Can you imagine a Christian who believed in Christ but does not read the Bible? The Word of God is a Christian’s daily bread. How can someone grow without feeding regularly? Every time you open the Bible, you have to have the attitude of meeting God and let Him speak to you to change, clean, mold, and renew your life and spirit through His words. The words that the Lord has spoken unto you are spirit, and are life. (John 6:63)
Prayer: God our heavenly Father, thank You for the Word of life that You gave to us. May the Holy Spirit shine on me all the time and let me meet You every morning through Bible reading and prayers. I wish to have fellowship with You at the beginning of each of my day. You are my Lord, and whatever You said, I am willing to follow. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
