The Real Reason We Don't Read the Bible - YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT Part 3

Be honest.  What's the real reason you don't read the Bible more?  Too busy?  Not sure if it's true?  Don't need to hear God's voice?  Nope.  None of those are the root.  The real reason we don't read the Bible is simple: WE DON'T GET ANYTHING OUT OF IT!

I am fully convinced of that. If you found HOPE in the Bible, you'd read more.  If you found COMFORT in the Bible, you'd read more.  If you found DIRECTION in the Bible, you'd read more.  Our problem is not that we don't want to read the Bible; our problem is that we get nothing out of it when we do.

That's why this Week 3 in the YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT series might be the most important one for you.  In it, I talk about what I believe is the most important thing we need to do to find meaning in the Word of God.  We know that there's good stuff in the Bible; but it doesn't do me much good unless I know how to find it and understand it.

Check out this week's message - The Real Reason We Don't Read the Bible - below and get ready to discover the one key to unlocking the benefit of God's Word in your life.

Praying Through Scripture - Extreme Makeover PRAYER Edition, Part 5

“We aren’t just reading words; but we are seeking the Word thru words.”

You can't speak about prayer without speaking about the Scriptures - aka, the Word of God.  If the goal of prayer is a conversation with God, then true prayer requires time spent prayerfully in the Bible.

That was the topic of Week 5 of the Extreme Makeover: PRAYER Edition series - PRAYING THROUGH SCRIPTURE.  Take a look at the video and find out what it means to pray through Scripture, why we need to do it and most importantly, HOW it can be done.
