Supporting Actors

"The Bible is not a collection of timeless principles offering a gentile thought for the day. It is not a resource for our self-improvement. Rather, it is a dramatic story that unfolds from promise to fulfillment, with Christ at the center. Its focus is God and his action. Gos is not a supporting actor in our drama; it is the other way around. God does not exist to make sure that we are happy and fulfilled. Rather, we exist to glorify God and enjoy him forever."

- The Gospel Driven Life, Michael Horton, page 26
