Recently the Center for Bible Engagement (CBE) concluded a ground-breaking, seven-year study aimed at finding the activities Christians engage in that statistically move the needle in regards to positively affecting moral behavior. Shockingly of all the “good things” many Christians are a part of (such as church attendance, prayer, volunteering, etc.) none proved to be statistically significant in and of themselves. In fact, the only variable that significantly impacted a Christian’s behavior was engaging with God’s Word four or more times a week. Should this surprise us? Consider this.
For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12 (NIV)
Yet even knowing the power of God’s Word in our lives, the most often cited reason (of the over 100,000 survey respondents from 20 countries) for not engaging in the Bible was they were “too busy” and did “not enough time.”
