All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV
Do you believe God created the Heavens and the Earth? Do you believe God created you in His image and likeness? Do you believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah? Do you believe Jesus Christ is the one and only Eternal Son of God?
Do you have an unshakable conviction that Jesus Christ is the Way the Truth and the Life? That no one can come to God the Father except through faith in His Son Jesus?
Through the sinless life, sacrificial death and resurrection of Jesus Christ we can stand before a Holy God. We can experience His love and blessing. These truths are revealed to us by a loving God in His Written revelation to us. They are revealed in the bible.
Some people say we should not believe what the bible says. They say the bible has passed through too many hands. It could not have remained intact for so long. It is ridiculous to believe God could not maintain the integrity of His written revelation!
I have heard people say the bible contains some truth and some fiction. Why would a perfect God give us an instruction manual that is only partially true and correct? The evidence that God’s Word is a perfect gift given to us by a loving God is overwhelming!
God’s Word not only contains truth it is truth. What is the truth God wants us to know? God’s Word reveals everything we need to live for Jesus in a world that opposes Jesus!
God’s love for us is so great He will not withhold any good thing from us. God will not withhold His blessing and provision nor His protection and guidance from us. He will not withhold rebuke and correction from us. He will not withhold discipline and punishment when we need it. God will not withhold judgment when He must judge.
God wants you to know and obey His Word so you can know Him and obey Him. Jesus wants you to know everything He has done and will do is for His glory and your good.
God gave us the scriptures so you can be thoroughly equipped for the good works He wants to accomplish in your life and through your life!
Paul told Timothy perilous times will come upon the earth in the last days. Why will the end times be perilous? People will turn away from the Word of God. The will invent their own form of righteous. They will deny the Son of God to pursue lust, greed and idolatry!
Paul described the persecutions and afflictions he endured for the Word of God. Paul encouraged Timothy to continue in things he learned and has been assured of since his youth. What things is Paul talking about. Timothy learned and obeyed the Word of God!
All scripture is given by inspiration of God. It is profitable for doctrine and for instruction in righteousness. I encourage you to pursue righteousness by pursuing Jesus. Be equipped for every good work Jesus sets before you by obeying the Word of God!
