As I read the Bible, I learn about God. And about myself. The Bible speaks of life, creation, and people. The Bible showcases the ideas of God. It reveals His thinking. It enlightens me, encourages me, humbles me, lifts me, and, yes, often thrills me. The more of it I understand, the more of it I want to understand. Re-reading it never ceases to yield new fruit. I know I will never master it, but I hope it will one day master me.
May the Bible yield all its treasures to you and may you forever bless the day you began to read it for yourself.
Nevertheless, be sure of this: the Bible testifies of Jesus Christ. If you have the Bible, but do not have Him, you have missed the Bible’s point.
The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in terms familiar to those who read the Bible, and to help others become more familiar with the Bible. For those unfamiliar with the Bible, look to the blog A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom which does not require you to be familiar with the Bible.
