Why should we read the Bible?

It’s not just for the knowledge or increasing the depth of our understanding of Western civilization (since so much of Western culture is rooted from the Bible) or picking up nice proverbs we can use throughout everyday life.  We should read the Bible because it is God’s Word and He uses it to transform people, no matter how good or bad they think they are.

For me, I want to read the Bible because of the transforming power it has. This transformative experience is what I desire, I want it to change and guide me, to create a heart that loves others and loves Him.

I read the Bible to be changed and to shape my will to God’s.  That his will, in fact, would be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Might his will start first within my bankrupt heart.
