Ephesians 3:4 (NIV)
4 In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ,
Reading the Bible is not some mysterious experience. This is not something that is beyond you. When we read the Bible in order to know God we will find that our path to such knowledge will be made available. God does not delight in playing hide and seek with his children, he delights to reveal himself to those who ask.
Matthew 11:25-26 (NIV)
25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.
26 Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.
The secret to understanding the Bible is really no secret at all you just have to be willing to approach God as a child. Paul tells us in reading the Bible we will be able to understand the mystery that is out of reach for the wise in this world. Begin today to read the Bible as a child longing to know their father and you will find the pages ablaze with his presence.
Every page and every line will become a burning bush where you will meet with your Heavenly Father. Talk about how to make the Bible a pleasurable experience get ready for the read of your life.
