Is The Bible Too Hard To Read?

God gives understanding to anyone who asks.

Jesus makes it easy to read His word.

Do you read the Bible in frustration? Does it make sense to you, or are you left wondering what it’s all about? Are there stories that make you shake your head and walk away? Jesus can help you understand it.

When Jesus appeared to disciples after His resurrection, He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the scriptures. (Luk 24:45) Without a touch from God, we will never understand His word correctly. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved, it is the power of God. (1Cor 1:18)

If you have not been renewed in your mind with the mind of Christ, just ask. He makes it so incredibly simple. That’s why it seems foolish to those who don’t believe. They want ritual and sacrifice and hardship. But God said, just ask. Ask and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find. (Mat 7:7)

All you need is one prayer away. Ask Him to fill you with His Spirit so you will read and understand His word. He will make sense of it for you and it will change your life if you will receive it.
