Growing in Love through Scripture

10/13/2013
Speaker: Layne Lebo

It was probably 15 years ago that I attended a conference at Christ Community Church where Jack Deere was speaking. Deere had been a professor at a seminary and his area of expertise was biblical theology. He experienced God in a fresh and powerful way and God showed him that the purpose of the Bible wasn’t just to impart truth as knowledge; it was to transform lives. Deere began to write books and speak about the insights he had received and his basic message was, “Through the Bible we encounter God’s Spirit who impacts our hearts and minds. God’s Word isn’t strictly informative, it is transformative.” Jack Deere then shared a statement I’ve never forgotten. He said, “I knew a woman who faithfully read the Bible every day for 25 years… and she was still meaner than a junkyard dog.”
