False Barriers

If you are struggling to get into the Word of God for yourself, why is that?  What is it that is more important?  What is so critical that you do not have time to invest 30 minutes a day digging into the book that promises to reveal the nature and character of God to you?  You say you want to know Christ better.  What other way is there to know Him in this age apart from time with Him in the Word?
We need to stop lying to ourselves that we do not have time to get into the Word.  Thoughts at DTTB.
You may say that you can read books about the Bible and that will do it.  Don’t kid yourself.  That would be like getting your best friend to date the girl you want to marry for you.  You cannot get to know someone through a proxy.

You may tell me that you have to spend time with your family.  Really?  They are more important than Christ?  Didn't you say that you wanted your kids to follow Christ?  If you are not setting an example, if you are not intimate with Him, where are they supposed to get the desire to follow Him?  TV?  Video Games?  Their friends at school? What the heck are you going to talk to them about spiritually if you are not fresh in the Word?

If you do not know how, we can remedy that; start here.  But stop telling yourself and others you do not have time for the one who created you for a purpose and gave you children to rear in the knowledge of Him.  That is simply a lie.
