How do you read the Bible? Daily Word from Pastor Graham. PowerPoint Ministries

How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through your precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way.

Psalm 119:103-104
In my time as a pastor, I’ve come to the realization that there are essentially three kinds of Bible readers. There are some I like to call “castor-oil” readers, who see the Bible as bad-tasting medicine. But they figure it’s good for what ails them so they decide to take it anyway.

The second kind, somewhat related to the first, is what I call the “Shredded-Wheat” readers. These are the people who see the Bible as a type of spiritual health food. Yes, it fills them up and is good for them, but they’d really rather be eating something else if they were honest about it.

I call the third kind “chocolate-pie” readers of the Word. These are the people who savour the words of the Scriptures and look forward to the time they’ll be back in the Bible again.

So which of these does God want us to be? Well, while the Bible can help cure our ailments and is healthy for us spiritually, God’s desire is that our spiritual mouths would water over His Word. He wants us to truly delight in His commands!

Don’t dread reading the Bible. Get into it and savour every word. Delight in God’s precepts and commands. Feast on the Word of God and you’ll reap tremendous spiritual blessings!


May God Bless Nigeria, America And Israel And Take Care Of Us; May God Make His Face Shine Upon Us, And Be Gracious To Us; May The Lord Lift Up His Countenance Upon Us, And Give Us Peace, In Jesus Christ Name, We Pray! Amen!

May The Grace The Lord Jesus Christ, And The Love Of God, And The Fellowship Of The Holy Spirit Be With You All. Amen!
