As a first year UCCF staff worker I was treated to an afternoon with Marcus Honeysett on handling the Bible rightly. For the first time in my life I realised that engaging with the Bible was more about meeting God and being transformed than merely learning things.
Marcus has posted on this theme recently - it's really worth a read. Here's his juicy conclusion:
You can search the scriptures uselessly because you are merely interested in comprehending the text, or you can search with all eagerness to your eternal profit because you have received the word in your heart.Enjoy!
