All Christians have a moment when they wish God would just come down and talk to them face-to-face. God wants to spend time with us, just like our family and friends do. The Bible is how this happens; it is the living word of God. Much like a letter, text or email we might send to someone we care about, God has given us His words to hear from Him.
Over time, as you read, new things will stand out to you, and scriptures that seemed pointless will make complete sense, as you continue to grow as a person and as a follower of Christ. It is through consistently setting aside time to listen to God that we are better prepared to know what God wants us to do in our day-to-day lives.
