The Bible can keep us away from sin, but if we’re wrapped up in sin it tends to keep us from away from the book. Only time in the Bible will help us spiritually mature into who God truly wants us to be. That will only come from feasting on the word.
Why do you read the bible? The bible is more than reading for information sake. It is to be read to transform who we are. According to the book of Psalms, the Word of God is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path.
