From my reading in John 5:25-47 in the One Year New Testament.
Jesus gave a warning to his listeners that it is possible to study the Bible but miss the main point!
“You study the Scriptures diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.” John 5:39–40
Don’t miss the point of the Bible! Some people read the Bible just to gain knowledge or to “say that you did it.” Some people treat it as a history book or book of wise sayings to pick out. But that would be missing the point.
The point of the Bible to draw us into a life changing relationship with Jesus.
The Bible is about Jesus, and how we can experience a relationship with him. The Bible is the only book where every reader has a chance to relate to the author!
Next time you open up your Bible let the words draw you into a relationship with Christ. DL Moody famously said,
“The Scriptures were not given to increase our knowledge, but to change our lives.”
So come to Jesus and have life!
