Give Attention to the Public Reading of Scripture

Reading the Bible as we gather for worship is foundational to our ongoing personal and congregational reformation. The public reading of Scripture in worship is a reminder that we are part of the living body of Christ, which is the pillar and support of the truth (1 Tim 3:15). This was important to the Apostle who wanted his young colleague Timothy to give his attention to “the reading” (1 Tim 4:13). Timothy was commanded by Paul to make the reading of Scripture a top concern for the ordering of the churches. We today should do no less.
