I have been reading every day for a long time. I am doing it now and want to continue to do so in the future.
Today I read one chapter in the Bible, Matthew chapter eight. For those who do not know, that is in the New Testament.
In the chapter I am reading about leprosy, the faith of one particular man, Jesus healing many, the cost of following the Lord Jesus Christ, calming of a storm and the healing of two demon-possessed men.
READ EVERY DAY
I have been reading the story about the two demon-possessed men already several times, but today I noticed for the first time that the Lord is answering the prayer of the demons.
The demons begged to be sent into the herd of pigs. And what is the answer of the Lord? “GO,” said the Lord.
Tomorrow am intending to read chapter nine in the Gospel of Matthew. The chapter begins with the healing of a Paralytic. It is a good habit, to read the BIBLE from cover to cover.
Today I read also a Devotional Classic, MORNING AND EVENING, daily readings by C. H. Spurgeon.
Today is September 1 and Spurgeon is explaining Psalm 73:24 where it says:
“You guide me with your counsel, and afterwards you will take me into glory.”
In his writing he is asking two questions:
1. Where is the mariner without his compass?
2. And where would the Christian be without the BIBLE?
If I remember correctly, the Devotional Classic was bought very very cheaply second-hand somewhere. And I think I remember correctly. Some of my best books are bought second-hand.
There is also another Devotional Treasury on my table, and that is the book called UNTO THE HILLS by Billy Graham. Another second-hand book, so far as I remember.
Especially reading the BIBLE every day helps me to lead a better life. Of course, I must do what I read!
