Only 2 out of 10 Australian Christians read the Bible on a daily basis.
And yet, Jesus said:
“Man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.” Matthew 4:4
God’s word is like food – it’s good for us, and we need it to live! Engaging regularly in God’s word is also the best thing you can do to grow as a Christian.
The Center for Bible Engagement discovered that the number one thing you can do for yourself spiritually is read the Bible 4 times a week or more. Read is this frequently, and your life looks completely different to those who don’t read the Bible, or read it less than that.
The Bible Society has launched a new campaign to encourage Australian Christians to spend more time in the Bible. As a church, we’re getting behind this campaign – trusting that our faith will grow, and our love for God will develop as we spend more time with Him.
