Be A Bible Bookworm

I once read a biography of Charles H. Spurgeon and felt in love with his passion and energy for the Word. I try to read as much as possible his sermons, books and other biographies that I my learn more of Christ and imitate his faith in Him. I want to be like him in that matter (though honestly he was a genius, a class by himself) and improving my prayer life and be diligent to the study of the Word. He is one of my heroes of faith. But do you know who inspired him? It wasn’t ‘
him’ but ‘it.’ A worm inspired him! C.H. Spurgeon said he once saw a Bible through which a worm had bored its way, beginning at the Book of Genesis and ending with the Book of Revelation; and from that hour his desire was to be a Bible bookworm, eating through the Word, believing and digesting it all.

Be a Bible bookworm. That’s the way to read the Bible. “Read the Bible not as a newspaper, but as a letter from home,” write F.B. Meyer, an author and teacher. He continues, “If a promise lies on the page as a blank cheque, cash it. If a prayer is recorded, appropriate it and launch it as a feathered arrow from the bow of your desire. If an example of holiness gleams before you, ask God to do as much for you.” Bookworm read the Bible not only for the sake of reading it, but to study it to be wise, believe it to be changed and practise it to be holy. Our heart and mind, feeling and thinking, being and doing, must be involve in our reading of the Bible.

Bible bookworm understand that many books can inform,
but only the Bible can transform. D.L. Moody once said,
I never saw a useful Christian who was not a student of the Bible.”
