Feeding On God's Word
"The primary purpose of the Bible is not to communicate information to our brains. Instead, the primary purpose is to change and transform us at the level of our hearts. In addition to reading the Bible for the purpose of information, Christians must commit to regularly reading God's Word for the purpose of transformation."
Nothing is more vital to our ability to understand and be transformed by Scripture than wholehearted devotion to Christ. When we are out of tune with God, our inner world is cluttered with self-centered sin and resentments. Character development is not a one-time event but an ongoing experience in the life of believers, we should continually be reading the Bible for transformation, allowing the Holy Spirit to bring us closer to the will of God. - S. J. Kidder
