The Bible is alive, and it’s the inerrant Word of God. It’s a good reminder that what we hold in our hand is more than just a book. When we read it we should let it read us and set it’s own agenda. Too many people approach His Word with major bias.
When you have a bias of any sort, or you have a predetermined idea of what it is you want the Bible to say, what you are doing is submitting God’s Word to your mind instead of submitting your mind to His Word.
When we submit God’s Word to our mind, “religion” is the result.
When we submit our mind to God’s Word, a transformed life is the result.
I don’t want religion I want to be transformed.
