To experience life-change, we need to understand that God wants to speak to us through the Bible.
We need the Holy Spirit to understand fully what God wants to reveal to us through the Bible.
God is speaking to us through the Holy Spirit using human authors. What does that mean and how does that affect how we approach the Bible?
We need to know the truth because only the truth can set us free. Whenever we approach the Bible, let us do so with the deep desire to know the truth.
God's purpose for the word of God is to transform us, not just inform us.
There's a way of reading the Bible that helps us to engage with God, not just treat the Bible as an ordinary book. It's called Lectio Divina.
