Why do you suppose we have become so comfortable with the Scripture?
I think it’s partly our sin. One of the devil’s finest pieces of work is getting people to spend three nights a week in Bible studies.
The Bible is all there to be lived. It was given to us so we could live it. Most Christians know far more of the Bible than they’re living. They should be studying less, not more. You just need enough to pay attention to God.
