2 Timothy 3:14-17 (NIV)
14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
v. 16 speaks of four uses of the Scriptures. Which of these are you now most experiencing in your life? Explain how.
It is not enough to just read a verse from Your Word here and there but I need to devote time in Your Word and absorb Your message daily. Every part of scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another, showing me truth, exposing my rebellion, correcting my mistakes, training me to live Your way and continuing to grow my faith. The Bible is my authority in all matters of faith and life. Lord, thank You that you equip me for each day as I study Your words, ponder them, meditate on them, and listen to Your Spirit. May I grow closer to You, Jesus, and be transformed into Your likeness as I spend time in Your presence. Amen
