Every time I read the Bible I run the words I read through this filter:
Who is God?
I open the book and I see Him, sometimes clearly, sometimes through fog…
I read the Bible to know God.
Because I love God. Because I am God’s child. And slave.
Because I am chained to Him, sewn to His side, vowed.
Because of my commitment and my position and my infatuation… it’s helpful to know what God’s like.
