It is good to get used to your own Bible. In these days of the extensive use of technology, this is getting to be less and less common. However, I still think there is something good about having your own Bible. In doing this, you get used to where certain things are in you Bible. You get used to what part of the page you saw something. How many times have I been looking for something in my Bible and not quite sure what reference it was, but knowing that it was in a certain location.
There is something encouraging to see people bringing their own Bibles to church with them. We have a church Bible at Feltham, which for practical purposes is good. However, to see people getting familiar with the Word through using their own Bible, as Scripture is read and preached in church is encouraging. There is just something good communicated by someone bringing and using their own B Bible in church and getting familiar with it.
