John Bradshaw - There's No Substitute
There are many ways to reach a person's heart for Jesus; some people respond to hospitality, some come to faith after their health needs are met, some people read their way to faith in Christ, or they get an invite to a church program, and it goes from there. Paul and Silas showed us what happens next in Acts 16:32, "Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who are in his house".
Studying the Bible is where growth comes from; scripture strengthens a person's faith, there's no substitute for the word of God, and the Bible isn't only for people starting their Christian journey. It's the bread of life, spiritual food, it's how you hear from God and learn his will for your life; you can't afford to go a day without reading and not just reading but internalizing God's word. Read the Bible every day, and you'll never stop growing in your faith in God. I'm John Bradshaw for It Is Written.
