Only One Book to Read
God wrote a book, and wants us to read it.
I like to read books, but others don’t. They may think, “Couldn’t God have made a feature length movie and said, “watch this to show yourself approved unto God”?
After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. Reading a book may be difficult for people who want to take action instead of cuddling up to a pile of bound paper and ink.
So, I’d like to make a proposition to you non-book readers: make the Bible the one book you read in your life.
Even non-book readers read at least 2-3 books in their life.
Although I would love it if we could all read a thousand books, I officially relieve you from needing to read the endless supply of commentaries, doctrinal-helps, and pop Christian literature.
Just read the Bible. I am so confident that God’s word will work towards your godly edification and eternal profit that I won’t even bug you to read the more than 400 articles on this website!
If you don’t read many books, then read only one. Know it well. You will have a great advantage to those who read hundreds of books and not the Bible.
Books give you understanding. God’s book gives you the understanding that matters.
For His glory,
