To people who have not been born again, the words of scripture seem tedious and dull; some, maybe most, would even call them ridiculous. But to those who are followers of Jesus, to men and women whose hearts have been transformed by the passionate pursuit and faithful love of Christ, his words are priceless. They are not merely read; they are reflected upon. They are not merely examined; they are enjoyed. They are not merely analyzed; they are applied. For the words of Jesus reflect the intimate relationship that disciples have with him. – David Platt – Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live.
