For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.–Romans 8:38-39

Making the Bible Come Alive

Leave a comment

“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.

quoted in Bible Study: Following the Ways of the Word by Kathleen Buswell Nielson.
