As Christians we are called to spend time in God’s Word so that we can understand what God will for us is. How is it then that so many who claim to be Christian can not even do that most basic of steps. Our greatest desire should be to want to Know God more and more and by reading the Bible we get to see His love for us through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary. We also get to see how just and holy God is and without that sacrifice of Jesus then we would all be punished for our sins.
Of those Australians who go to church, 21 per cent read their Bible daily, 14 per cent open it a few times a week and 6 per cent once a week.But 24 per cent said they read their Bibles only occasionally, 18 per cent hardly ever and 17 per cent said they never read the Bible on their own as a private devotional activity, according to the research, which is based on the 2006 National Church Life Survey of 500,000 people who attended church from 22 denominations.
