I'm quite prone to introspection. But my posture toward God is that of listening to another person. My quest for divine knowledge is not about self enlightenment, but about the knowledge of a holy, self-existing, Creator in who’s image I was made.
So I receive the Bible as an intended communicative act of God. As such, every word of it must be truthful, understandable to its recipients, and not failing to accomplish its intended purpose. A person's response to God cannot be different than his response to God's words.
Scripture reveals the narrative of human history culminating in Jesus Christ. The book of Hebrews begins,
"Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high," (1:1-3).
God the Holy Spirit helps those who have received Christ to apprehend the words of Scripture. This work of illumination is different than the Spirit’s work of inspiration by which the writers were empowered to write down the precise Word of God.
I'm coming to know the experience of the psalmist who says, "In the way of your testimonies I delight as much as in all riches."
