I’m taking a few days off from research and writing to hear from the Lord. In the interim, I am sharing interesting posts from some of the blogs that I personally follow. Today, I’m sharing a post from my good friend Peter Guirguis over at Not Ashamed of the Gospel.
There’s a wrong way and a right way to read the Bible.
Reading the Bible the wrong way can lead to nightmares.
Why do I say that?
I want you to imagine that you get on a boat.
It’s one of those cruise ships that’s like a floating hotel on water.
Your destination is the beautiful island of Aruba.
You’re looking forward to the beautiful blue waters and the white sandy beaches.
As the captain begins to navigate the ship, he makes one small mistake.
The captain accidentally enters the wrong GPS coordinates, and he’s off by one degree on the map.
After three days of sailing off course, the captain takes a look at the GPS system, and realizes that he is thousands of miles away from the beautiful island of Aruba!
Oh no, traveling just one-degree off-course over three days made the captain miss the beautiful destination by thousands of miles!
Reading the Bible the wrong way will cause you and I to miss our destination in life by thousands of miles.
Yes, it well cause nightmares.
