Why Read The Bible?

Why Read The Bible?

We read and study the Bible because it is God’s Book.

He transcribed it by the hand of human beings whose quickened lives and hearts were wholly given to God and His purpose in Creation.

That purpose is Redemption, which in one word tells where we are from and where we are going.  A species specifically designed for communion with their Creator is given over to an antagonistic environment and a set of tests by which to qualify for the Main Event, eternal communion and fellowship with God and all the Redeemed.

We read and study the Bible because it’s God’s Book.

It gives the keys that open the doors and windows through which we may glimpse and become a resident of absolute Reality, while yet inside the man-ufactured environment which denies any absolute.

We read and study the Bible because,

As we do, our Creator’s face becomes clearer as our minds discover the wonder of His infinite intricacies and the joy of the interaction and communion in His Persons.

We read and study the Bible because,

As we do, our Father’s heart invades the dark isolation of our soul and our spirit is resurrected to life, Life In Him, His Life in us, to become the transmitter of His unapproachable holiness, His redeeming personality, His gathering nature, His childlike wonder and gushing joy in being together and in filling each of us with an all-encompassing, overflowing tiny particle of Himself, which becomes the fullness of His Person in human flesh.

We read and study the Bible because it is God’s Book.

Our God, our Creator, our Father who by the power of His Spirit gathers us to Himself to show His glory walking, talking, touching, loving, working, resting, singing, thinking, creating… all in flesh and blood, a Body of human bodies surrendered for the ultimate joy of knowing and showing Him to each other and to the worlds He has made.
