WHY it is so important to develop the habit of daily Bible reading?
A blessing enjoyed in Christ is support from brethren in times of spiritual crisis... Those who are strong are to support the weak – Rom. 15:1 “We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves.” Those who are spiritual are to help those overcome in a fault – Gal. 6:1”Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.” It is part of the “law of Christ” to thus bear one another's burdens – Gal. 6:2 “Bear one another’s burdens and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
- 1 John 1:9 “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” It is here in the aftermath of conversion that growth begins. The real work in our lives begins. It is the reason we are admonished to grow in grace, knowledge, patience etc.
