The Importance of God's Word

How important is the Word of God to you? Co you make sure that you spend some time everyday in His Word?
When I meet a fellow brother or sister in Christ, one of the first questions I ask is, “What have you been reading in the Word?” Which is usually followed by, “Is anything sticking out to you while you read?” Most of the time I get a response of “I haven’t been reading the Bible lately,” or “I’m...uh...reading...uh... I forgot what I read this morning.”
“For I delight in Your commands because I love them. I lift up my hands to Your commands, which I love, and I meditate on Your decrees.” –Psalm 119:47-48
Delight- the source of pleasure; great satisfaction; joy (Webster’s Encyclopedia of Dictionaries)
Do you delight in the Lord’s commands because you love them, and Him?
Think of the Word of God this way... a letter written to you from the Person who loves you the most. If someone wrote you a love letter wouldn’t you want to read it every chance you got? (Personally I would especially if I said I loved that person back)
We as followers of Jesus Christ should want to spend time in God’s Word.
"Oh, how I love Your law! I meditate on it all day long." -Psalm:119:97

It's so important to read, study and memorize(!) God's word. It's amazing how many different things one passege can teach me at different times.

I love it when you ask me those questions Moriah. It keeps me accountable. And it's really encouraging when a sister (or brother) in Christ is trying to help you in your walk with God. So please keep it up!!!

I don't use those excuses anymore...not usually anyway. I read 1 Peter 3:8-12 this morning-no, I'm not actually sure on the verses. But somewhere in there.

Oh, yeah, this is Rachel. That's me on the "anonymous" comment too.
