People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God. – Matthew 4:4 (NLT)

A recent study revealed that 80% of churchgoers do not read the Bible daily (LifeWay Research). Let`s turn that statistic upside down! Foundationally, we are to be people who are fed by the living and active Word of God. In John 8:31, Jesus told His followers, If you abide in My Word, you are My disciples indeed.

God’s Word is life. It is the food we need for our spiritual survival. It has the power to transform, to bring hope and to direct us in how we should live. When we commit to immersing ourselves daily in the Word, our minds are continually renewed and we find true strength in Christ.  

We live in an age of abundance of Christian material. As a PAOC family committed to learning, we are blessed with countless opportunities to engage Scripture and Bible-based resources in ways that will strengthen our faith. Let’s commit to being in the Word and living the Word! We can reverse the trends we are seeing.

This is who we are. We are people grounded in the Word. We read every day.
