The Effect of The Bible on Spiritual Life

But one thing is necessary.
Mary has chosen the good portion,
which will not be taken away from her.

Luke 10:42 ESV

When we sit quietly, meditating on the word of God, we meet the Lord, and in time our souls unite with Him. Studying the Bible, if done in the spirit of prayer and love for God, is paralleled to Mary, the sister of Martha. Sitting at Christ's feet she had "chosen the good part, which will not be taken away from her."  (Luke 10:42)

For what is the 'good part' except the Lord? The Lord will not be taken away from her because she was united with Him, loved Him, and was transformed into His holy likeness by constantly sitting at His feet.

Continual reading of the word of God in the spirit of prayer grants the soul union with, and steadfastness in the Lord Jesus Christ. In short the Holy Bible reveals to us our need for God, and tells us that God is waiting for us. It is the point where the poor sinner meets with the loving heart of God.
