Although the term has become more popular, we still lack a commonly understood definition of what it means. Most agree that it must include taking in the words of scripture, either through reading or listening. But does it have to be for a certain length of time or a certain length of text? Does it count if you are reading a devotional? Do you need to approach the scripture with a particular attitude, such as already believing that this is the infallible word of God? Can someone who has doubts still engage the Bible?
These questions and many others are worthy of discussion, debate and research among theologians and ministry professionals alike. Yet at the end of the day I keep coming back to what God says about His Word.
