Reading the Bible

The Bible is not a grab-bag of spiritual one-liners and inspiring stories. When we pick and choose what we want to read, skipping the confusing or uncomfortable parts, we can miss the story — the epic narrative that points to Jesus.

It’s a unified story about how God appoints humanity as His partners to oversee His amazing creation, how humans ruin that partnership, and how God is restoring us and our world through Jesus.

It was self-serving humans that ruined the partnership with God. Don’t miss the story by doing the same thing all over again.
