Ralph Waldo Emerson once wrote, “What lies behind you and what lies before you, pales in comparison to what lies inside you.” If we purpose in our hearts to read and study the Bible daily in 2015, it will change our lives forever from the inside out.
John Adams, the second president of the United States, read the entire Bible every year. Andrew Jackson, the seventh US president, referred to the Bible as “the rock on which our Republic rests.” He read three to five chapters each day. Abraham Lincoln, the 16th US president, called the Bible “the best gift God has ever given to man … But for it we could not know right from wrong.”
Ronald Reagan, the 40th US president once wrote, “Inside the Bible’s pages lie all the answers to all the problems man has ever known. The Bible can touch our hearts, order our minds, and refresh our souls.”
The Bible is the number one best-selling book of all time. No book has made a greater impact on the world than the Bible. No book reveals more about God than the Bible, and God rejoices when we read it.
Let’s make 2015 the year of reading, meditating and applying the Bible, God’s inspired Word, to our lives! We will be completely changed from the inside out.
