Take Scripture Personally
Jesus was asked by an expert in the law, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?”
Jesus asked the expert one of the most important questions we can ask ourselves regarding scripture, “What is written in the law, and how do you read it?”
The sad truth is that many read the scripture and teach it to others without taking it, personally. In other words, they apply the text to others and forget to answer the call it brings to them, personally. We do our best when we come to Christ and we take His “yoke” upon ourselves and we as individuals learn from Him, not just showing others how His yoke fits upon them (Matt 11:28-29).
