How Do We Read Scripture?
Understanding is not a place you arrive at, but a journey you embark upon. It is not enough to understand what God said; you need to understand as well why He said it. It is a virtuous circle. The more you practice what you learned, the more you will understand God’s reasons and motives. When you understand God’s motives, you have a glimpse of who He is. Intimacy with God is the result of a life of risks taken to follow His advice and the certainty it produces that His word is true and His promises are sure. Once you have experienced this, you will not want—in fact, you will not be able—to remain silent. Just like the disciples at Emmaus.
