David Powlison writes on how does the bible change you:
“God meets you where you are.” That’s atruism. But when you stop and ponder how that happens and why it happens, it is nothing less than light breaking into darkness. A sin-sick, life-bruised soul revives and begins to live.The Christian life is organically alive. We turn, we trust, we obey, we grow—interacting with what’s happening around us, as the God of truth breaks in. He has gathered us to himself in a lifelong holy experiment in redemption.
