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.
