According to theologian N.T. Wright, when asked how one should read the Bible, he replied, “frequently and thoroughly.” What is it about the Bible that makes it so influential? Paul says that ALL scripture is inspired… breathed… by God. It is a book of eternal and ancient, yet surprisingly current, faith. It never claims to be anything BUT a book of faith. It is a book about life, and people, the way we are. It is, despite being written 2000 years ago, a book about US. It’s also a book of instruction, intended to teach, to correct, and to set boundaries in life. And it’s the story of God’s relentless love for us. It proves to us, many times over, that our God is a God who will not let go.
Based on Psalm 119:9-16, 105 and 2 Timothy 3:10-17.
