Sick of WHAT, Give me WHO — Reading the Bible for Transformation, Not Information

Reading the Bible seem boring or discouraging? Start looking for the WHO (the Lord), not the WHAT (the rules). I was sick of the WHAT until I found the WHO. Reading the Bible for Transformation, Not Information via www.jeanwilund.com

Sick of What. Give me Who.

I stared at my Bible and thought, I really should read it, but I don’t want to.

Tired of being reminded of all the commands I’d break before bedtime — before breakfast if I’m being honest — I sighed.

How do some Christians live with power and faith that could move mountains — perhaps even literally — and I just live? I know there’s more to this Christian life than existence! What am I missing?

And then a thought struck me.

I bet the answer is in the Bible. Perhaps it’s time to read the whole thing. 

I picked up my Bible and prayed, “Show me Yourself, God, on every page. I’m sick of rules to keep in hopes of becoming a better Christian. I just want to see You, Lord. Amen.”

I wanted transformation, not information — the Who of the Bible, not the What.

I was sick of What. Give me Who. Please!

Today, I’m excited to introduce my friend Beckie Lindsey to you.

When Beckie and I met at a writer’s conference, we realized almost instantly that, even though we live on opposite coasts, we’re kindred spirits. Except this woman likes to jog.
