The General and Commissioner Silvia CoxAs Christians and Salvationists, we believe in the importance of the Bible. We believe in its divine inspiration. Yet would others say of us that we are people of the Word? Do we read it? Do we study it? Do we know what God wants to say to us through his Word?

That is why the reading and study of the Word of God is such an important part of our spiritual journey.

If we fail to read the Scripture, we are severely weakened on two counts:
1) We do not know what God wants to say to us.
2) We do not know how to react when facing difficult and tempting situations!

Jesus said: 'Scripture cannot be broken' (John 10:35, King James Version)

Paul wrote to Timothy: 'All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness' (2 Timothy 3:16, KJV)

Peter wrote: 'For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit' (2 Peter 1:21, King James 2000 Bible)

We earnestly encourage you to take up this Bible reading challenge and together as One Army we will discover - or rediscover - the wonderful treasure that God has given to us through his Word.
