Do you enjoy music? Do you know that musical notes and progressions follow certain rules and can be analyzed with nearly mathematical precision? And yet this analysis can never capture the true essence of the music. You have to listen to it and engage with it for that, and music can be profoundly moving. Do you approach my word with the same sort of mathematical precision that music can be analyzed? It is possible to study scripture in thorough detail and be unmoved by it. My word will withstand intense scrutiny, but I want you to listen to it to be moved by it and be transformed by the encounter.
