With a loving, compassionate heart, deeply seeing all of mankind’s sufferings, strict and righteous in teaching, advising, and correcting mankind, God’s Word has the power to help us see our true selves. The Bible can “penetrate even to the point of dividing soul from spirit” (Hebrews 4:12). In other words, the Bible can help us see how we are different from what we appear to be. As a mirror, the Bible helps us to recognize our shortcomings, to see our true inner nature; since then we can see the light in the dark tunnel, see the sun behind the clouds, see the dawn emerging behind the dark night of humanity…And the heart is always overflowing filled with that deep love is the light, the faith, the hope that illuminates the hearts of people living in the mundane and temporary world like us… Through the Bible, God enlightens, shows us the way, guides us to find the right path and happiness for ourselves…helps us practice the cultivation of personality and cultivate, reinforce our wisdom every day.
In ancient times, when choosing Joshua to be the leader of the Israelites, Jehovah God said to him: “Do not let this book of the law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, and carefully do all that is written in it; for then you will prosper in your way, and then you will be blessed” (Joshua 1:8). Yes, to be successful, Joshua needed to read God’s Word “day and night” on a regular basis.
Don’t try to force yourself to read the Bible, but always consider the Bible as a friend, a confidant…..a person who understands all of our pain and happiness in this world…..Words of God is always the Word of the world’s great Teacher…who always loves mankind with his vast, tolerant and great heart, with all his sacrifice and taking the blame for sins of humanity…..but He is still alive, still existing through the BIBLES to expect mankind to preserve the good natures of God in every own action and word…..Transforming those good qualities into our own so that we ourselves will truly live a life of God, will be His true embodiment…..live an eternally happy life in this world……
