Matthew McConaughey and the Burning Bush

Alright! Alright! Alright! I listened to a podcast recently featuring Matthew McConaughey. He is one of the few actors that doesn’t shy away from mentioning God. In the podcast he even expressed the value of the Bible, especially the Proverbs and teachings of Jesus. One statement really got my attention – he didn’t know what to do with the burning bush. When asked to clarify he said he isn’t sure what to do with the “magic” of the Bible, as he referred to it, such as the burning bush, miracles, etc. I don’t think he was questioning it, he just doesn’t see how it is relevant for every day life. Mr. McConaughey, it is that “magic”, the supernatural that gives life to the Proverbs and teachings of Jesus. It is the supernatural that makes the Bible more than just a book of advice. It is the supernatural that created Heaven and earth and gave Jesus victory over the grave. It is the supernatural that gives us new life, eternal life. Yes, we can appreciate the practical advice from the Bible, but lets not separate it from the supernatural. Alright? Alright! Alright?
