Scripture is God’s Speech

“Man was made to know good with his mind, to desire it with his affections once he knows it, and to cleave to it with his affections once he knows it, and to cleave to it with his will once he has felt its attraction.  Accordingly, God who is the supreme good, moves man not by direct action on the affections or will, but by addressing His speech to man’s mind, so bringing to bear on him the force of truth.  Scripture is God’s speech, given us in the form of human speech; so the preachers first task must be to teach the contents of the Bible, and the Christian’s first task must be to learn them.”

Dr. J.I. Packer
