Deterring Sin, Accelerating Faith

Good post by Mark Batterson on Bible reflection and application.

Sin Deterrent and Faith Accelerent
I know of no greater sin deterrent and faith accelerent than simply reading the Bible on a daily basis. There is no substitute. There is no shortcut.

Of course, it takes more than reading. The Bible wasn't just meant to be read. It was meant to be meditated. Reading without meditating is like eating without digesting. We don't absorb all the nutrients. May God give us a ravenous appetite for His word.

Reading results in one-dimensional knowledge.
Meditating results in two-dimensional revelation.
Obedience results in three-dimensional faith.

Read it. Meditate on it. Live it out.
