I’m not one of the folks who think you have to fill your Bible with every helpful thing you’ve ever read and then always carry around your Bible with you for the message of the Bible to be the focus of your life. I agree with C.S. Lewis and others who make the point that, “It is Christ, not the Bible, who is the true word of God.”
I do think it is very important to read the Bible for yourself to experience the love of God in its fullest. We live in a very literate culture. And since the Bible is still the largest selling single volume, not to mention you can download the app to your computer or phone, not reading the Bible is a choice we make.
I encourage you … right now…to make a couple choices: Go over to where your Bible is (if you are at work you can download the app or wait until you get home. You can even Google it.) and turn or scroll down or choose Matthew 22:34-40. Then read this scripture for Bible Sunday. And then come to worship at 10 on Sunday, and we’ll talk about it together.
The point of reading the Bible together is not always to understand exactly what it is saying for us to do, it is to claim the desire to be led together to the Christ the Bible points towards.
Keep the Faith,
