Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. - Hebrews 13:8

If you are a regular follower of my blog in my previous post I have told few facts about bible that it is top selling book as well as most criticized book.

King David said "Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."-Psalm 119:105
Isaiah 40:8 Says "The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the word of our God stands forever."

Many Christians themselves say Reading bible is very boring or some say I am not at all getting interest to read bible or some even pose a question What benefit do I get by reading Bible? Now I ask you what are you loosing by not reading it.Many unbelievers who don't believe The Holy Bible as a Word of God and deny reading it and they say our rituals our traditions etc don't accept reading other religious books.We must pray for them because they are in deception by not reading this book.Even my dear fellow Christian believers I insist everyone to read Bible.There is a small story which I want to share it with you.

The story is told of an old man who lived on a farm in the mountains of eastern Kentucky with his young grandson. Each morning, Grandpa was up early sitting at the kitchen table reading from his old worn-out Bible.

His grandson who wanted to be just like him tried to imitate him in any way he could. One day the grandson asked,

"Papa, I try to read the Bible just like you but I don't understand it, and what I do understand I forget as soon as I close the book. What good does reading the Bible do?"

The Grandfather quietly turned from putting coal in the stove and said, "Take this coal basket down to the river and bring back a basket of water." The boy did as he was told, even though all the water leaked out before he could get back to the house.

The grandfather laughed and said, "You will have to move a little faster next time," and sent him back to the river with the basket to try again.

This time the boy ran faster, but again the basket was empty before he returned home. Out of breath, he told his grandfather that it was "impossible to carry water in a basket," and he went to get a bucket instead. The old man said, "I don't want a bucket of water; I want a basket of water. You can do this. You're just not trying hard enough," and he went out the door to watch the boy try again. At this point, the boy knew it was impossible, but he wanted to show his grandfather that even if he ran as fast as he could, the water would leak out before he got far at all. The boy scooped the water and ran hard, but when he reached his grandfather the basket was again empty.

Out of breath, he said, "See Papa, it's useless!"

"So you think it is useless?" The old man said, "Look at the basket." The boy looked at the basket and for the first time he realized that the basket looked different. Instead of a dirty old coal basket, it was clean.

"Son, that's what happens when you read the Bible. You might not understand or remember everything, but when you read it, it will change you from the inside out.

That is the work of God in our lives.

To change us from the inside out and to slowly transform us into the image of His son.

Take time to read a portion of God's word each day. Pray that He will use it to turn your heart and mind to Him.
