The World’s Most Important Book:
Why so much emphasis on reading, studying, meditating on, and obeying God’s word? Because the temptations and allurements of this world confront us daily—even moment-by-moment. We need help to put these temptations and allurements into proper perspective—that we might say yes to God, and no to Satan (who is behind temptations to wrong-doing). God’s word is “a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Heb. 4:12 in part). In order to have open lines of communication with God, we must be honest with Him (and with ourselves) about the temptations and allurements that are part of life’s daily grind. The word of God (regular intake of God’s word) helps us to do just that.
