Why are reading the Bible and daily devotions so important for Christians?

Well the reason they are important is because we need to spend time with the Lord. Think about it this way– we spend time with those who are important to us, our significant other, friends, family. We spend time with them because we enjoy being in their company and because we want to know them better. Well this is the same reason we should consider a daily time set aside to spend with Jesus to get to know him better.  Prayer and reading the Word of God will accomplish many things in our spirits.

1. It will bring us closer to Christ
2. It will transform our hearts and minds and make us more like Jesus.
3. It will reveal the Will of God to us for our own lives.
