Helpful Hints for Reading the Bible

Every believer should regularly read the Bible (or listen to it, if you prefer audio). Admittedly, the Bible can be tough to read, especially for the person who doesn’t know much about it! However, regular reading is valuable. Jesus asserts,

“If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31–32)

To abide means to “live in.” It implies knowing His word, then living it out. And it all starts with reading!
