Why do we need to focus on Bible skills?
Lifeway says, "While the majority of churchgoers desire to honor Christ with their lives and even profess to meditate on biblical truths, a Lifeway Research study found few actually engage in personal reading and study of the Scriptures."
"When asked how often they personally (not as part of a church worship service) read the Bible, a similar number responded 'Every Day' (19 percent) as responded 'Rarely/Never' (18 percent). A quarter indicated they read the Bible a few times a week. Fourteen percent said they read the Bible 'Once a Week' and another 22 percent said 'Once a Month' or 'A Few Times a Month.'"
"God's Word is truth, so it should come as no surprise that reading and studying the Bible are still the activities that have the most impact on growth in this attribute of spiritual maturity," Lifeway Research stated. "As basic as that is, there are still numerous churchgoers who are not reading the Bible regularly. You simply won't grow if you don't know God and spend time in God's Word."
