Christians are a people of the Book.
We are requisite readers and historians. Ours is a lifelong study of the most influential book in human history.
But that doesn't describe the half of it. We believe that God has revealed himself inerrantly and authoritatively in the Bible. The Holy Spirit that resides within us sets affections and understanding on that precious Book, the single heirloom of our faith family, passed down generation to generation.
In that book, in the Bible alone, we see and know the grace of God in Jesus Christ. Grace and forgiveness are revealed nowhere else.
So, Christian, member of Christ Covenant, where is the evidence in your life for a deep love for God's Word? How much of your empty flailing against sin can be attributed to an ignorance of God's Word and ways? How much of your confusion and misunderstanding of God's power and grace are more because of your neglect of that book rather than an infirmness of mind or body?
Whether you live your life with resolutions or not, resolve this one thing: that you will be a student of Christ in the Bible for all your days.
