May we be INSPIRED!

This book ... my first read of 2018 ... and I love it!
I will use it over and over for writing, speaking, and counseling because it is filled with practical, insightful, biblical TRUTH about the importance of reading, memorizing, and meditating on God's Word.
If you need to be encouraged to ramp up your Scripture reading, you will find success after spending a few hours between the covers of this wonderful book.
And if you want to learn how to read God's Word in a way that will change you from the inside out, you will also find success!
Our pastor recommended this little gem during a sermon, and I will be forever grateful to the Lord for prompting me to not only write down the title, but secure my own copy.

There are several quotes that have already caught my attention, but this one seems the most fitting. It is an excerpt from a sermon Charles Spurgeon preached on Colossians 3:16.
Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

"In order that the word of Christ may dwell in you, it must first enter into you. You must really know the spiritual meaning of it. You must believe it, live upon it, drink it in - you must let it soak into your innermost being as the dew saturated the fleece of Gideon. It is not enough to have the Bible on the shelf - it is infinitely better to have its Truths stored up within your soul... There is no book so fitted or so suited to us as the Bible. There is no book that knows us so well. There is no book that is so much at home with us. There is no book that has so much power over us if we will but give ourselves up to it."


May this verse and this quote inspire each of us to seek the Lord continually through His Word.
