I’m listening to a professor who has taught the Bible for over 35 years. He apologizes that he cannot contain himself; he’s gripped with passion for God and His word. God’s word thrills. It captures.
He remarks that when we read the Bible, we should expect something powerful to happen. We should expect our lives to change. We encounter a God who is faithful and good and who loves us beyond measure. We are gripped, captured, and thrilled by the supernatural.
We are changed.
