Quote of the day: Don't go to the Bible to find yourself

My pastor Chris Thomas, preaching on Psalm 119 Daleth, spoke about causes and dangers of feeling low, and had urged us to express our low-ness and use psalms of lament. He then gave the warning:
If you are low, don't go to the Scriptures to find your low-ness. That can be a real issue, can't it: we can go to the Bible always to find ourselves in it. Go to the Scriptures to find God, and especially in the person of Jesus Christ, in the Scriptures.
[Sermon available here until 20/09/09.]
