These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be caused to stumble.
You want to read the Bible more. You wish that you could find the same passion for the Scriptures that you used to have. But you don’t. You’re tired. You busy. Something else always comes up that demands your attention. What? You actually found a chance to sit down and read the other day, but it just didn’t feel the same?
Stop focusing so much on yourself.
Really. Jesus didn’t ask you to read the Bible because it makes you feel good. He didn’t ask you to read it when you had the chance, after you got some more sleep, or as soon as your schedule slowed down. He asked you to follow His example. His desire is that you’ll spend time with; that you will learn from what He left for you. He spoke these things, and recorded them, so that you wouldn’t stumble in your faith. It’s important!
To read your Bible (to actually read it rather than just a devotion) is vital to your Christian walk. A verse or a chapter on your mind in the morning will give you guidance in the afternoon. The more you read and take to heart, the more the Holy Spirit will be able to remind you of later.
If you read it because Jesus said it would help you not to stumble, it’s no longer a choice.
