Deuteronomy 17:18-19, “And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites: And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the Lord his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:”
This was instruction to a king that would rule over his people, but it is just as applicable to us today. The law was to be him, and the king was to read it all the days of his life. He was to learn from it and live his life accordingly.
As Christians, the law in this passage represents the Word of God. We are to have the Word of God. We are to read it all the days of our life. Each and every day, we ought to be spending time in God’s Word. Why is this so important? We can learn from the Bible. We can learn how we ought to live. We can learn how we ought to fear the Lord.
I do not believe Christians fully understand how badly they need the Bible in their everyday life. It’s not enough to just have it on Sundays. We need it every day. The Bible is not made just for leaders. It’s made for the common man. The Bible is so easily accessible to us in the English language. It’s in the store, on the internet, and even on our phones. There’s no excuse for a Christian not spending time in God’s Word. We need God’s Word in our life. We need it. We need it! We NEED it! Let us make it a priority to spend time in the Word of God every day.
