Many speak of loving God but exhibit minimal or no concern to know the Scripture. They may be disinterested or even caviler about learning the Scripture. Their reverence for the Scripture is romantic rather than actual. Their interest in being taught the Scripture is limited to whatever practical value it has as a How To book rather than a book calling them to a radical life of self-denial and submission to Christ. A life of serving.
Their claim of loving God does not include a love for God’s word. But a person cannot truly love the God of Scripture without loving the Scripture of God.
Seeking to love and follow God apart from loving to hear from Him through His Word is more characteristic of a lost person than a devoted follower of Christ.
“If you love Me, you will keep My commandments” John 14:15
