Do you answer the phone?

John Chapman, a well-loved preacher from out this way, used to say: ‘If the phone rings, you don’t stick your head in the microwave.’

When God speaks to you through the Bible, you don’t ignore him, or look elsewhere to hear him.

The Bible is God’s living and active word. It’s how he speaks to us. It’s how we hear him. Living his ways in the Bible is how we obey him and so grow in relationship with him.

Yet, sadly, surveys show there is a real drought in the Word of God in Australia. Not many Christians say they actually read the Word of God.

Let’s break the drought! This week and next we’ll encourage each other to read the Bible… not because we “have to” or “ought to,” but because we love God and love to hear him speak to us.

In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
