Other Ways To Read The Bible
Keep your eyes and ears on the Bible!
Proverbs 4:20: My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart. 22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. 23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
What better use could we make of our eyes and ears than reading the Bible and listening to it? At least 3 Christians have told me about reading it aloud to themselves. Eyes and ears focused on the Bible are a good way to keep them from seeing and hearing things that they shouldn*t. We should study the Bible by ourselves, but because of the solitary nature of it I don*t believe that should be the only way we do it. It may sometimes be the only way available. To me the Bible seems less powerful when it is read by some people. I wonder if that is because they are not filled with the Spirit. The Word of God can be in our own mouths and hearts.
Deuteronomy 30:11: For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. 12 It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 13 Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? 14 But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.
