Who Is The Bible About?
That the Bible isn’t mainly about me, and what I should be doing. It’s about God and what he has done.How often we confuse those things. The old fall back Bible study question, "What does that passage mean to you?" Has become, in essence, "How is this passage ABOUT you?" But it is not about you or about me - it's about God.
Scripture is sometimes self-revelatory, sometime not, but it is always revelatory. It ALWAYS revels God and His ordering of and plan for creation. In reading scripture we are learning our place in that plan and order, but that plan and order is not about us.
That is a vitally important distinction we have been forgetting.
