God's Word-Out Loud

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Joshua 8:30-35

After securing victory over Ai, Joshua builds an alter for a peace and burnt offering where the Israelites renew their commitment to God. Joshua then reads to the entire assembly--Israelites of all ages and those who had joined them along their journey--every single word of God's commandments that had been given to them through Moses.

Why is it important to renew our commitment to God from time to time? Based on this account, how essential is it for us to know and understand God's instructions to us in the Bible, and to regularly spend time with God in His Word? How does reading Scripture out loud benefit, impact and/or help us? Tami

Tami, I want to thank you for these wonderful
Bible studies and your questions that makes
me think out of my comfort zone.
I need to update my commit to God
and to studying His Word.
God bless you for your faithfulness
and love of God's Word!!
May many others be drawn to the
study of God's Word too!

Words out loud reach us deeply in a way different from silent reading. These Joshua passages are hard to read -- words we want as allegory, but they won't entirely settle in our understanding as allegory because they represent real events, names and places. We own His word, we read, study, and meditate on it. God will apply it to our hearts.
