Reading the entire New Testament or the entire Bible doesn’t automatically save you, but isn’t it a logical thing for Christians to progress towards? You want to avoid this:
- Non-Christian: So, you believe the Bible is the word of God and tells you all about your Savior and such?
- You: Yes!
- N-C: Have you read it all?
- Y: Uh, not as such, no . . .
- N-C: Not even all of the New Testament?
- Y: Look – a squirrel!
Another thing to avoid: Talking about the importance of the 10 Commandments but not being able to name them.
I encourage everyone to read some of the Bible every day. It doesn’t have to be a lot. Just do it. It will make you a better ambassador for Christ.
2 Corinthians 5:20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God.
