“The primary purpose of Scripture is for the church to eat and drink its contents in order to understand better who God is, what he has done, and what it means to be his people, redeemed in the crucified and risen Son.” 

“We study the Bible so we can know better who God is and ultimately what he has done in Christ.  Such study, by God’s Spirit, is a means by which God forms us into the image of his risen Son, with whom we are coheirs.  We must, therefore, be ever vigilant to inspect our own motives, lest we fall into the well-worn rut of thinking that study of the Bible prepares us to lead rather than to serve.”
