My favourite verses: Psalm 119:18

"Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in Your law."

To me this verses speaks of the voyage of discovery that is embarked upon when reading the Bible on a regular basis. No matter how many times you've read it in the past, if you will ask God to open your eyes afresh to His truth, He will show you new things that you haven't seen before. Listening to Bible commentaries is good and may well be a source of these new discoveries, but there is no substitute for being led and taught in the Word of God by the Author Himself.
It's possible to read the Bible only with your mind. Usually this results in a feeling of spiritual dryness. But spend time in prayer before opening the Scriptures, and the Holy Spirit will make them come alive.
