Becoming Familiar With The Word

"Feeling Scripture entails regular inhabitance in the Bible - Jesus likes the word abide - so that we have a practically instinctual sense of its threads and contours.  Getting to that place does involve reading God's Word over an extended period of time, but over time the effort we put into this practice begins to feel less like something carried out in our own power.  What seems so unnatural and awkward before begins to feel more natural and reflexive."  ~ Jared Wilson, The Imperfect Disciple
