The Bible isn’t one more resource book from which we pick and choose a few good ideas in the relentless task of constructing a life we will like. Nor is it an answer book, a science book, or a rulebook. When questions in life emerge, we don’t search the Bible for ready-made solutions. If you try that, you’ll find that the Bible is asking more questions than it’s answering. And the most important question it’s asking is, “Do you want salvation through faith in Christ Jesus?” Faith is a means of seeing that Jesus is not a part of your life, but that you are a part of his life. Your life is given an eternal purpose. It’s made a part of a great story that began long ago and will keep going long after us. Your life isn’t just a matter of working, commuting, paying bills, and visiting the grocery, mechanic, and doctor’s office. No, your life is also a vital part of God’s historic drama with the world. This month, our series Either/Or will examine where our faith really lies and in whom or what we have placed it.
