Relevance of Scripture
We have to be careful as Christians not to always face the Bible with a “How is this relevant to me?” attitude. The Bible is first about God and HIS relationship with the world. John 3:16 for example starts with “For God so loved the WORLD,” The Bible FIRST is about God’s character, purpose and His plan and that is relevant to us all.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
