#ReimagineSCRIPTURE...relationally not informationally
The Word of God is alive and powerful because God is at work in it and through it. He energizes His Word and applies it to my life.
So, before I start reading Scripture, I usually start with a simple prayer… “Lord, today I want to meet with you and I want to deepen my relationship with you. So, speak to me. I am listening.” I am reminding myself to read the bible relationally, not just informationally. As a pastor, my default mode is to come to the Bible looking for truth that I can use in a sermon. The irony is that I can come to the Bible looking for truth and actually be disconnected relationally from the truth-giver.
