We can “search the scriptures” and still miss it Olympically!

When Heaven Invades Earth: A Practical Guide to a Life of Miracles (Bill Johnson):

Fear of deception has opened the door for a tragic movement among believers.  [….] This is the picture that many paint:  In one corner we have balanced looking people who value the Bible as the Word of God, and in the other we have emotionally unbalanced people who seek after esoteric, spiritual experiences with God.  Is that an accurate picture?  Jesus made a frightening statement regarding those who hold to Bible study Vs. experience:

“You search the scriptures, for in them you think you have life; and these are they which testify of Me.” 

If our study of the Bible doesn’t lead us to a deeper relationship (an encounter), with God, then it simply is adding to our tendency towards spiritual pride.

So, we can be searching the scriptures all day and still missing it BIG TIME!
