ALLOW THE WORD TO DISTURB YOU


"We need to repent of the haughty way in which we sometimes stand in judgment upon Scripture and must learn to sit humbly under its judgment instead. If we come to Scripture with our minds made up, expecting to hear from it only an echo of our own thoughts and never the thunderclap of God's, then indeed he will not speak to us and we shall only be confirmed in our own prejudices. We must allow the Word of God to confront us, to disturb our security, to undermine our complacency and to overthrow our patterns of thought and behaviour."


[From "Culture and the Bible" (Downers Grove: IVP, 1981), p. 33. --Excerpted from "Authentic Christianity", p. 105, by permission of InterVarsity Press.]
