Lonnie Berger, TWR's Global Director of Men's Ministry, maintains that a daily "quiet time" is more than just reading the Bible for five miniutes and then saying a quick prayer, it's "learning the skill of ... how to get into the Word, meditate on the Scripture, and allow yourself to begin to hear God's voice." You might be asking, why would you call a "quiet time" a "skill?" Think about it. In our various dealings with each other, we learn and use communication skills. In school, we are taught reading and writing skills. And in order for our marriages to truly flourish, we must learn relationship skills. So, biblically speaking, knowing that Jesus is the "bridegroom" and the Church is His "bride," should we not also develop some good communication and relationship skills so that we might grow closer to our loving Lord? The answer is obviously yes!
