I listened to a message online today called The Curious Joy of “Irrelevant” Scriptures. It was spoken on Sunday by John Myer at UA Christian Assembly and based upon the Lord’s “Bible study” in Luke 24:15-32.
The message dealt with the trend of consistently making the Bible “relevant” by turning it into a “how to” manual and forgetting to point to the person of Christ. John reasoned out the habit of how we can get so accustomed to trying to find out “how to” live the Christian life or “how to” feel better that we forget that the point and focus of the Bible is not us but Jesus Christ. He demonstrated that if we are not careful our desires for “solutions” can replace our our focus and hunger for Jesus.
