“…you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God.” (1 Thessalonians 2:13b)
If God were to cry down from the heavens with lightning and the voice of thunder, I suspect most would listen and obey. We respond quickly to overt power and flaunting strength. Yet, the words of the Scripture are no less the words of God than ones spoken from a quaking mountaintop or boomed from the heavens.
To read the Bible is to hear the words of God spoken directly to you. These are not good words; they are ultimate words. The Bible is authority engraved in text. Listen accordingly.
