Someone said to me recently, ‘You don’t have to read the Bible or go to church to be a Christian.’ And I said, ‘no you don’t, that’s absolutely true! And similarly, you don’t have to talk to your spouse or go home for you to be married, but then what kind of a relationship is that? The fact is we can’t grow in our relationship with God if we don’t really spend any time with Him – in prayer and in the Scriptures.
