I’ve always had a special interest in the Bible.
As a child, I always wanted to carry a Bible to Church.
I would always go to Sunday School carrying my little Precious Moments Bible (don’t judge me!).
I would struggle to find the right passage when the teacher began to talk.
I always had my Bible with me.
As I got a little older, I always enjoyed hearing the stories of the Bible.
They were so exciting, so full of adventure.
The Bible seemed to have endless great stories.
While I never understood the real point to these stories,
I always enjoyed the Bible.
The problem with the Bible during parts of my life…..
My unwillingness to apply it.
The problem with the Bible for the Church in general….
Our unwillingness to apply it.
It’s great that we know the stories.
It’s great that we filled up our sticker chart in Sunday School.
It’s great that we can remember the characters from the stories.
It’s great that we buy custom Bible covers to carry our Bible in.
It’s great that we put it on our coffee table when company comes.
It’s not great that we often fail to apply the Bible to our lives.
It’s not great that we allow the divine book of God to have no place in our lives.
It’s not great that we hear the stories, but don’t believe them enough for them to effect us.
It’s not great that we don’t take the time to let the words of the Bible transform us.
So, there is one problem with the Bible…
It’s just a problem of our doing..
It’s in our application of it.
Don’t just read it,
2 Timothy 3:16 “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness…”
