2 Timothy 3:16-17, NAS: All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

I have heard well intentioned people express to me, through a tone of regret, that they just cannot get themselves to sit and read the Bible, or that itís too difficult for them to understand. But I have never heard a Christian tell me that he or she spends enough time reading and studying the Word of God. So the question is: How do we get inspired to spend time in Godís Word? Iím not sure I know the best answer to that. Perhaps it is one of those things that once you begin to feel the effect of it, you simply crave it more. Maybe that is oversimplifying it a bit. But one thing I know: there is an indescribable joy when God brings back to mind, scripture you have committed to heart. There is an excitement stirred when you hear someone quoting a scripture that has touched or changed your life. There are wonderful treasures that wait for us within the Words that the God of the universe desires to speak to us. And once we commit to open His Word like a treasure chestóit is then that His treasure will be revealed.
