YOU CAN'T JUST READ THE BIBLE.
To do anything without passion, hunger and thirst is to do nothing at all! To one day decide that you are going to sit down, read the Bible and know all there is about GOD, IT WON'T HAPPEN! To know GOD comes from the personal relationship with HIM, then when you "hunger and thirst" to know more about HIM the Scriptures come ALIVE and the secrets of their meaning are revealed. Matthew 5:5, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness..." Matthew 4:4, "Man shall not live by bread alone..." We are all born with this inner desire for something timeless that nothing in this world ever truly satisfies. Our longing for meaning and JOY is our desire for GOD, and without some circumstance or event in our lives that brings us to our knees, we will not recognize or understand! Bertrand Russell (the famous atheist) finally admitted; "The center of me is always and eternally a terrible pain... a searching for something beyond what the world contains, something transfigured and infinite, the beatific vision - GOD!" When we "hunger and thirst" with passion we will READ THE BIBLE FROM NEED, AND WE WILL BE SATISFIED.
