The goal of theology

Jonathan Parnell:

The Bible is amazing. God has spoken to us in a book — a glorious story about his glory and grace centered on the God-man, Jesus Christ. But the life he saves us to — our life in Christ — plays out in this world beyond the pages of his word. What we learn about him is meant to serve how we live for him.

And Paul Tripp says this is dangerous for pastors and Christian leaders.

The temptation is, as Tripp aptly describes it, “to become more excited about the world of ideas [in the Bible] … than the loving worship of Almighty God and self-sacrificing love for the people of his church.”

Are you all about studying, but not serving? All lesson and no love? Paul Tripp helps us:
