How to Read the Bible for the First Time... again

Conference details

Can you remember what it was like to read the Bible for the first time? No, probably not.

And a good thing too. After all, we don't want to go right back to the beginning. We want to know the word of God intimately; we want it flowing through our veins; we want our minds saturated with it and our hearts filled with its riches.

The trouble is, sometimes we get so familiar with the word of God that we forget how extraordinary it is. We find it harder to keep digging deeper into its riches. We no longer see new things on every page, as we used to. Precisely because the Bible is familiar, it no longer takes our breath away. We're no longer dumbstruck by it. Familiarity might not breed contempt, but it can easily create indifference.

But it doesn't have to be this way. How would you like to read the Bible for the first time... again?
