The entire Bible has an appeal like no other book. However, there are certain books of the Bible that stand out to me, and I’m sure you have your favorites too.
Isaiah is where I find the strength to move forward in the calling of God on my life, no matter the circumstances. And some of the greatest prayers of consecration are found there. Genesis is always a favorite place to land, because I love the story of creation. Particularly of interest in this book of beginnings are the patriarchs and how their obedience (and sometimes disobedience) birthed a people that God chose to be His. The Psalms are like therapy for me. I often see myself in the passages of text written ages ago but are still relevant to my relationship with God today.
Now there is one book, that may not immediately register in the “Christian’s Top 5 Books of the Bible” list, but it was my favorite as a child and is very much a favorite of mine now – the book of Revelation.
I propose to you that not only is Revelation a book that is more gripping than any sci-fi or fantasy novel, it is also a book that holds the key to our future and eternity with God. Best of all, it has the most epic spoiler – the result of this battle between good and evil and the long conflict waged throughout millennia: God wins.
I encourage you to read through Revelation at least one time. It is a book that is meant to bless you and not scare you.
Here are five ways reading Revelation will bless you:
