The Bible is about God

First and foremost the Bible is about God. Last term we studied 1 Samuel at night church and one of the things we spoke about often in growth group was how the Bible is primarily about God and not us. It changes the way that you read the Bible. Rather than looking for how a particular passage applies to ME, I'm firstly reading it to understand more about God: who he is and what he has done. Of course the Bible applies to us in many ways but if we read the Bible without any regard for the Author then we become the centre of the universe rather than Jesus.

I'm speaking at Christian school chapel service tomorrow. It's a talk from our youth group camp last holidays entitled: IT'S NOT ABOUT ME - TURNING FROM THE IDOL OF SELF. I'm humbled to reflect over the material once again.
