I mean – yes, I understand where he is coming from. But I disagree.
We need to be focused on the person of Jesus Christ – not the Bible.
Focusing on the Bible is like studying old love notes why your spouse is sitting on the sofa wanting to snuggle!
Don’t get me wrong – the Bible is the inspired word of God – read it, study it and know it. But don’t focus so much on the Bible that you miss the Person of Jesus.
And no – reading the Bible is not the same thing as “focusing on Jesus”. Jesus is a person and as a person you must talk to him, listen to him, hang out with him – just like you do with your friends or spouse or family.
Read the Bible – but focus on Jesus.
