Here’s a great quote from Michael Reeves Delighting in the Trinity: An Introduction to the Christian Faith:
“…when you see that Christ is the subject of all the Scriptures, that he is the Word, the Lord, the Son who reveals the Father, the promised Hope, the true Temple, the true Sacrifice, the great High Priest, the ultimate King, then you can read, not so much asking, “What does this mean for me, right now?” but “What do I learn here of Christ?” Knowing that the Bible is about him and not me means that, instead of reading the Bible obsessing about me, I can gaze on him. And as through the pages you get caught up in the wonder of his story, you find your heart strangely pounding for him in a way you never would have if you treated the Bible as a book about you.” (pp.82-83)
I so love this quote because in an effort to make the Bible apply (which isn’t necessarily wrong), we can miss out on what the Bible actually says (which would be wrong). Look to exalt the Son as you read God’s Word and find Him satisfyingly good.
