If there is one thing that every Christian should be better at, it should be at reading their Bible!
Bible reading is an essential part of the Christian life! It is how God talks to us! We can pray all day and all night and tell God everything we need to tell them, but I believe we miss out on some answers due to our lack of Bible reading. God is probably sitting there in Heaven willing to show you His answer from His Book, and we probably miss the answer because we do not read His Word.
Now I am a firm believer in having and using a physical copy of the Word of God. Too much blood has been shed and too many lives have been lost for me not to use and cherish a written copy of the Word of God. But in this day and age, and the amount of technology that is out there, I think that having a Bible app on your phone is useful!
I was thinking of random places that we could read the Bible on our phone…
- In the doctor’s office while we are waiting for our appointment.
- In the restroom – I think we live in a day and age where people are on their phones all the time even in the restroom, might as well put that time to good use!
- On your lunch break.
- If you travel a lot, you can read on the plane or in the airport.
We take our phone everywhere we go, we might as well give ourselves the opportunity to read God’s Word when we have some extra time.
Another useful thing that comes from having a Bible app on your phone is that you can listen to the Bible. I listen to the Bible on my way to work, but you can listen to it anywhere you go.
We live in a day and age where we have absolutely no excuse not to read our Bible. We need to utilize our time to get closer to God through our Bible reading.
