You can’t have a close relationship with someone you never talk to. It’s impossible. God’s Word—the Bible—is the primary way He speaks to us. It’s inerrant, infallible and it’s the absolute best way to discover how to follow Jesus on a daily basis.
The Bible is at the heart of your relationship with God. What you know about God, you learn in the Bible. You also learn about yourself in the Bible, as you discover the basic principles and truths of life. You can measure all things in life by the absolute truth of God’s word.
Reading the Bible is more than getting to know the Word of God…it’s about getting to know the God of the Word.
