Why do you read the bible? For me I have no other choice. I am completely lost without Christ Jesus. I have no idea how to live a moment in this world unless I read His word. For it is His words that direct my path. Not saying that the path is always easy far from it.
For there is all sorts of traps and wolves waiting to catch me off guard. I have this assurance from Christ that He will never leave me, He is always right beside me helping me to walk.
And when I feel I cannot take another step I feel the power of the Holy Spirit anointing me to continue. When I reach my journey and my spirit has settled down that is when the Holy Spirit shows me that during those rough patches the Lord was carrying me in His arms.
Therefore, I read the bible.
