Rediscovering the Bible

Carrying a Bible to church used to be standard procedure for believers. Sunday School teachers taught from it, and pastors preached from it. You needed a Bible if you wanted to follow along in the text. Then we came to a time of prolonged interaction and “worship” and minimal Bible teaching and preaching. As feelings replaced faith as the focal point of the church-going experience, Bible exposition became rare and the presence of Bibles in a church service became almost non-existent.

It may be hard to get back to the Bible, but we need to try. Perhaps, Christians will tire of the fluff and feathers of empty emotionalism and insipid entertainment and begin to seek the milk and meat of the Word. It would be so refreshing to hear pastors say, “Thus saith the Lord,” instead of “Here’s how I feel.”

I hope I live long enough to see the Bible restored to its rightful place in worship.
