I am challenged to read through the Gospel of Mark with more intentionality. This is an invitation from the Spirit. I am now in Mark 9 and have come to a realization that I am back to my default approach to reading Scripture.
We need more than “Bible knowledge.” The Bible is more than information. It’s more than your personal answer book. The written word leads us to the Living Word, and we too often treat it like a manual for life.
Don’t just “read” the Word. Don’t just “study” the Word. As believers, we are invited into a level of engagement with the Scriptures that doesn’t have any other parallel. Why settle for so much less?
