Reading the Bible can seem daunting. Its words, however, are the very words of God and the words of life. God wants us to hear, understand, and believe His Word, and His Spirit works through it to enable us to do so. The first challenge in reading God's Word is simply to open the Book. The devil delights in distracting us with other activities or priorities that may seem more urgent, exciting, or important. So resist, and frustrate the devil!
1. The Bible is about forgiveness and life in Jesus.
2. Scripture interprets Scripture.
3. Testament interprets Testament.
4. Words do things (warn, humble, encourage, etc.).
5. God the Holy Spirit helps us.
