God’s Word is all about God. That should be obvious. But we spend an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out our place in His story. The Bible is not about you or me. It’s about God. We make a mistake when we try to make it about us. From Genesis to Revelation, we are reading the story of Jesus. Since Jesus is the very Word of God (John 1:1), it only follows that God’s Word is all about Him.
Yet the most prevalent form of preaching today centers on finding yourself or your circumstances in the Bible. I’m not saying there isn’t a plethora of wisdom to be found in the Word of God, but it is not the primary reason the Bible exists.
