Hearing the Holy calls for a restoration of the devotional reading of Scripture in our churches. Once upon a time, people did not read Scripture so much for information. They read it wanting formation. When the pages were opened it was believed that God was about to be encountered. When God speaks, God’s people should listen. It was a kind of reading that expected a very real encounter to occur. This sort of devotional approach to reading the Bible will do wonders for our spiritual growth.
