“The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.” John 6:63
“R. C. Sproul offers a valuable warning as he writes of his frustration at being asked to speak and “make the Bible come alive!”
I had to force myself to swallow my words. I wanted to say,
“You want me to make the Bible come alive? I didn’t know
that it had died. In fact, I never even heard that it was ill.
Who was the attending physician at the Bible’s demise?”
No, I can’t make the Bible come alive for anyone.
The Bible is already alive. It makes me come alive.
