Just read a page of Tim Keller quotes. Here is a link to the quotes. One of the quotes in particular spoke to me about the purpose of the bible.
“The Bible’s purpose is not so much to show you how to live a good life. The Bible’s purpose is to show you how God’s grace breaks into your life against your will and saves you from the sin and brokenness otherwise you would never be able to overcome… religion is ‘if you obey, then you will be accepted’. But the Gospel is, ‘if you are absolutely accepted, and sure you’re accepted, only then will you ever begin to obey’. Those are two utterly different things. Every page of the Bible shows the difference.” (ht: centralityofthegospel) Tim Keller
My prayer today is that I rely on God’s grace and guidance in all my activities.
Below are some verses to help guide me… and as the quote from Tim Keller states and also my prayer today… may “God’s grace break into your (my) life against your (my) will and saves your (me) from the sin and brokenness”
Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit
15 “If you love me, keep my commands.
14 As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance.
6 He held fast to the Lord and did not stop following him; he kept the commands the Lordhad given Moses.
23 Paul looked straight at the Sanhedrin and said, “My brothers, I have fulfilled my duty to God in all good conscience to this day.”
