Why do you think is the reason the world has become immoral and so dangerous? People are in difficulties, financial problems, and suffering all around without any hope. The reason the world is in this condition is because people have rejected God, his commandments, and his principles. The society has gotten here because people don’t want God to tell them how to live. Let me ask you: How important is the Bible to you? Do you really desire God’s word?

Benefits of desiring God’s Word.

Do you know that the Bible is the largest selling book in the entire world? The problem is that people buy the Bible but seldom do read the Bible.

Barna conducted its annual State of the Bible survey in 2018, in partnership with American Bible Society, to examine behaviors and beliefs about the Bible among U.S. adults.

89% use the print version of the Bible.

60% uses smart phone and print version.

56% percent of the Bible readers say that Bible positively impacts spiritual growth.

6 in 10 Americans believe that the Bible has transformed their life.

Illustration:

An atheistic college professor visited the Fiji Islands and critically remarked to an elderly chief, ’You’re a great leader, but it is a pity you’ve been taken in by those missionaries. They only want to get rich through you. No one believes the Bible anymore in our culture. They know better now. I am sorry that you have been so foolish to believe them’.

The old chief’s eyes responded, ’Do you see that great rock over there? On it we smashed the heads of our victims and we roasted their bodies in that furnace next to the rock. If it hadn’t been for the missions and the Word of God that changed us you’d never leave this place alive! You had better thank the Lord for the Gospel; otherwise we’d already be feasting on you.

1 Peter 2:2 Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, 3now that you have tasted that the Lord is good.

The pursuit of God knowing God’s will and the mind of God starts here.

Genuine spirituality is marked by a delight in God’s truth.

Isaiah 66:2b These are the ones I look on with favor: those who are humble and contrite in spirit, and who tremble at my word. God is speaking through Isaiah to the people of Israel in exile in Babylon. You are far away from the temple, from your Promised Land. I am not drawn to you by a temple but I am drawn to the one who is humble, contrite in spirit and trembles at God’s word. Be humble and come to an understanding in my spirt that I need the word of God for my life.

Joshua 1:8 Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.

Paul said in Romans 7:22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law.

Job 23:12 I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread.

David said in Psalm 19:9-10 9The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous. 10They are more precious than gold, than much pure gold; they are sweeter than honey, than honey from the honeycomb. God’s word was David’s pleasure and greatest treasure.

Repeated over and over again in the Bible is this foundational reality that one who belongs to God has a delight in His Word.

Illustration:

George Mueller, who was known for his strong faith, confided. “The first 3 years after conversion, I neglected the Word of God. Since I began to search it diligently, the blessing has been wonderful. I have read the Bible through one hundred times and always with increasing delight! I look upon it as a lost day when I have not had a good time over the word of God.

Illustration:

John Bunyan, who wrote Pilgrim’s Progress, testified, “Read the Bible, and read it again, and do not despair of help to understand something of the will and mind of God, though you think they are fast locked up from you. Neither trouble yourself, though you may not have commentaries and expositions; pray and read, and read and pray; for a little from God is better than a great deal from man.”

Read the Bible. There is nothing wrong with reading the different versions of the Bible, but take one and have a deep desire for it. Friends, you need to go to a church that speaks the word of God. If you go to a church and the preacher never opens the word of God, never preaches the word of God, dilutes to word of God to please people’s ears, you need to go to another church. The church is all about challenging and explaining the living word of God, thereby transforming the lives of people.
