LET THE BIBLE READ YOU
Martin said in a voice that was almost a whisper, “I know you’re a student of the Bible. And I know you read Scripture not just to read it but to incorporate it into your life. But have you ever let the Bible read you?” Martin’s words were spoken out of love and humbleness.
“I’ve never heard that phrase before, but it sounds intriguing. You’ll have to explain it.”
“Let me speak of what that means to me,” Martin began. “I mean the Bible is God speaking to me directly and the Holy Spirit exposing the thoughts of my mind, my motivations, my sin, my value, everything God wants me to know about myself. I truly believe I cannot know myself without God’s voice in Scripture telling me who I am in Christ.”
