Does your church make time for the public reading of Scripture?

I am not speaking of the pastor reading a text here or there in his sermon.

Among the exhortations the apostle fires off to Timothy in a staccato burst is this: “Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching” (1 Timothy 4:13). If the last two facets describe preaching (and, I think, they do), the first describes the reading of Scripture to the congregation.

Mull that over for a moment. We have direct apostolic authority to read the Bible as part of our church service.

Find out about public reading of Scripture in your church service from Dan Phillip’s blog post, Bible reading — in church.
