“Friends, How Important Is The Bible To You?”

1 06 2011

Greetings I bring to you friends in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ Our Redeemer. Dear friends, as I take you to today’s article let us have a look at the above topic entitled ” How important is the Bible to You?” If we take a good look at believers today it is really a sad thing to say that to many believers the word of God that is the Bible has become less important in a believers life. Just read on with me friends.

Dear friends, in today’s hi tech and a busy world that we all live in, we as believers has opt to other things and made it more important than the bible that is the word of God. The word of God has become less important in some of the believers life. For instance, the media, internet and cell phones play a more important role in the life of a believer than the Bible. If we really take a survey, you will see that the former things was more important to the believer than his or her bible. You may ask friends, why I am saying so? I am not judging anyone but to you my friends out there today around the globe, what has become more important to you today? Is it the bible or other things?

Dear friends, as we take a look in the families of believers, you will see that nowadays even a little child at the age of 4 or 5 years old will be able to handle a cell phone. Most believing youngsters or teenagers will be having a cell phone with them. Even during the church services you will see teenage children meddling with their cell phones. Even at church, the cell phone is so important to the teenagers and also mind you to the adults too. How serious have we taken the word of God to be in our life? We take so much time to check out the messages that we receive on our cell phones. Are we as believers taking the time to check the gospel messages in the bible? How many times a day do we check our hand phones for any messages from our friends and our loved ones? Try asking yourselves this question my friends! The hand phones have become an important part in our lives rather than the word of God. The word of God has become the secondary thing in the lives of the believers.

Dear friends, when we leave home and if we have forgotten to take our hand phone with us, what do we do? Most of us would go back to get our hand phones, don’t we? But what happens if we have forgotten to take our bible with us? Are we going to go back and take the bible from the house? Believe me most of us believers would not do that. We wont want to go back to get our bible. Friends, do you know how important is it to have the bible with you? It is the most important tool and gadget you  must have with you all the time. It is the Compass of your life! Without it, you will be going on the wrong track. You will be lost. You will be walking in darkness instead of light. You will be spiritually blind. Friends, whatever it is, do not leave home without your Bible! If you can’t carry your bible that is big, then try to get a pocket bible. Ladies, you can carry it everywhere. That is what I do. My bible is with me all the time.

Dear friends, you who are parents, have you brought the importance of the bible to your kids. Some parents are so proud to say that their children and their grandchildren know how to handle the hand phone even at the age of 4 and 5 years old. This parents and grandparents take so much time to teach their kids how to handle a hand phone but they do not take the pain to teach the word of God to their kids and grandchildren. Why is that so?  From here we can see how we as believers have taken the word of God seriously in our lives. We do not want to bring the importance of Gods word to the kids. So, if our kids are heading for the wrong path, who is to be blame? Isn’t it us, my friends!

Dear friends, we are heading into the last days. If we are not going to bring the importance of the bible and the word of God to our children, they will not know what is the truth! They will be blinded with all kinds of wrong teaching and they would even deny Jesus Christ as Our Lord and Savior. Friends, it is our duty as parents and grandparents to let our kids know to give the first preference to God first and the rest is secondary. If we are not going to show how important is the bible and the word of God to our kids, who is going to do it? Friends, today how important is the word of God and the BIBLE to you? Have a Blessed Day.

God Bless.
