That I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings…” –The Apostle Paul

     I’m not much of a reader. Whenever I make time for the sport I want it to be a book that will matter. I’m a realist too, so fictional material is out of the question unless it has a deep, poetic, life-changing nature. Boring, huh?

We were at a large canyon in Texas recently and visited the state park’s gift shop where a nationally-known author was signing his newly-released book. The story was fictional and the content seemingly irrelevant to my life, but I was captivated by this book immediately because of my new-found relationship with the author!

The Bible is not a compilation of fictional literary works. Even still, approximately eighty-one percent of believers find it irrelevant as weekly reading material. Scripture-reading is not a chore, it’s an enjoyable part of our spiritual metabolism, but the relevancy of the content deeply depends on your relationship with the author. Have you spent time listening to Him this week?
