Hebrews 4:12-13

The Bible directs followers of Christ towards the importance of constantly being in the Word. But let’s be honest, sometimes it’s not as easy as it sounds. How can we make time in our busy schedules to pick up the Word of God and read it? Pastor Tony Pyle lays down some practical principles on how to effectively make time to read the Bible and allow it to transform our lives.

“We believe that the Bible is inspired by God, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. It is composed of the 66 books of the Old and New Testament, and was written without error in the original manuscripts. It is the highest authority over all other forms of revelation.”

– Riverview Statement of Faith


For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.

Hebrews 4:12-13


“The inner life of a Christian is often a strange mixture of motivation both genuinely spiritual and completely human. It takes a supernaturally discerning agent such as the Word of God to sort these out and to expose what is of the flesh.”

– Bible Knowledge Commentary


Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.

Psalm 1:2


I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways.

Psalm 119:15


Make me understand the way of your precepts, and I will meditate on your wondrous works.

Psalm 119:27


Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me – practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.

Philippians 4:8-9


So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.

Romans 10:17
