Paul writes in Colossians, “And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory” (1:27). When I simply come to the Bible, silent and vulnerable, I begin to grasp the enormity of that statement. Jesus Christ—the Word, the Bible made flesh—lives in me and in you. The Bible isn’t a book to know. It’s a story to live out every day, a story that we live out only by the grace of God’s transformation.
