The Bible

“The tragic fruit of neglecting the Word of God is not just ignorance…[it] is a barren life. And not just barren, but a powerless and dissatisfied life is inevitable when you neglect the Bible habit of the Christian life, of reading the Word of God. And today we’re living in a time when people want everything the easy way. You used to have to percolate coffee; you don’t have to do that anymore. You can just stick the spoon in the jar and slap it in the hot water and give it one stir, and you’ve got coffee. In the same way people today are seeking spiritual shortcuts. Instead of faithfully studying and seeking a true knowledge of the Word of God, they pursue some kind of an experience that will just shortcut the whole thing.” Jack Macarthur
