What do we want the Bible to do to us?

When introducing a book by George MacDonald, C.S. Lewis once said this:

"It gets under our skin, hits us at a level deeper than our thoughts or even our passions, troubles oldest certainties till all questions are reopened, and in general shocks us more fully awake than we are for most of our lives."

That's actually a great description for how a Christian longs to be grabbed by his or her Bible.

It's a good prayer to pray whenever we open Scripture: alone, with a friend, in families, in groups, or in church.
