In this day of text messaging and email addresses for everyone, wouldn’t it be great to email the Lord at his address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.? Of course we cannot email God. But he’s given us an alternative means of communicating with him—praying so he will hear what we say and reading the Bible so we can hear what he says.

Since I was a small boy growing up in a Christian family and taken to a church every time the door was open I’ve heard preachers and teachers exhort me to read my Bible and pray. Participating in these activities is part of the practice and tradition of the Christian faith. Not to read your Bible or pray is in a very real sense not to know what it means to live the Christian life.

God, his Word says, likes to hear from us. He wants us to talk to him, to share our needs and express our gratitude. The Sovereign Creator God of the universe invites a relationship with those he created. He desires communion with you and with me, just as he wanted it with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden long ago.

Reading the Bible lets us learn God’s will for his world. Once we learn it we become his ambassadors, carriers of a message of reconciliation to a lost and hurting world. We know truth and are able to make it known. We can do this because our confidence and our competence are rooted in the Spirit of God’s grace in our lives, not in our own strength.

We may not be able to contact the Lord by emailing him via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., but we can know and think his thoughts after him. This is one of the profound beauties of biblical Christianity.
