If You Do Not Read, You Will Not Grow!

The Bible says that we are to “…walk as children of light …trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:8,10, nasb). A missionary co-worker has discipled many women in the Philippines – younger, older, poor, rich, middle-class, educated and uneducated alike. She observed over the years of ministry that much growth in the Lord came about with much reading of the Word, good books, and obedience. She said, “If Christians do not read, they will not grow.” The Bible says “But grow in grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18, nasb).
