Golden Hours with the Bible

Golden Hours With the Bible

If you are hungry at heart, read the Bread Chapter. If your feet are slipping, read the Rock Chapter. If you find yourself getting cross, read the Charity Chapter. Have you many defeats at the hands of Satan? Read the Victory Chapter. Do you lack faith? Read Hebrews 11.

Make up your own chapter names. Don’t stop until you have named every chapter in the Bible. You will find this a most interesting and profitable means of Bible study.

Feed on God’s Word like the Patriarch Job, who said, “I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food” (Job 23:12).

The Bible Reveals:

The Bible reveals: the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers. Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are unchangeable. Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you. It is the travelor’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword, and the Christian’s character. Here Paradise is restored, Heaven opened, and the gates of Hell disclosed. CHRIST is its Grand Subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its end. It should fill the memory, rule the heart, and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently, and prayerfully. It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure. It is given you in life, will be opened in the Judgment, and will be remembered forever. It involves the highest responsibility, rewards the greatest labor, and condemns all who trifle with its holy contents.

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16.
