I have heard the phrase “Christians are people of the book.” I would rather be known as a person of the Word. Jesus is the Word of God. The Bible is a signpost pointing us to the Word of God. I want to revere the Bible and gaze into it in order to more clearly see the Word. Evangelicalism—at least where I have been in evangelicalism in my life—has obscured the Word of God by focusing on the scriptures themselves. I needed to step back and evaluate how I approach Scripture.
