2 Tim 3:16-17

16All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.

“I believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God that guides my beliefs and actions.”

God reveals Himself

God Has a plan

God invited you into relationship

All Scripture is inspired by God

12For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

23for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, [that is], through the living and enduring word of God.24For, "ALL FLESH IS LIKE GRASS, AND ALL ITS GLORY LIKE THE FLOWER OF GRASS. THE GRASS WITHERS, AND THE FLOWER FALLS OFF, 25BUT THE WORD OF THE LORD ENDURES FOREVER." And this is the word which was preached to you.

  • Inspired - God breathed - birthed of the Holy Spirit who is the breathe of God - that means the Spirit of God is active within and through it.
  • God has given this word LIFE
  • He SPOKE The universe into existence and now He is still SPEAKING - it carries that same power!
  • Heb 4:12
  • 1 Peter 1:23
    • The Word of God is the imperishable seed - the seed that does not pass away - has been planted in your heart!
    • When the Word of God takes root in you - you will be BORN FROM ABOVE and Born INTO resurrection life!
  • Rom 10:17 17So faith [comes] from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.
    • Even the power to believe comes from the Word of God itself - in HEARING THE WORD - the God grants faith to the human heart.
      • they didn’t READ God’s word back then MOST of them couldn’t read!
  • 1 Thes 2:13 For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.
    • Treat it like the word of GOD and not just any word - The same word that said “LET THERE BE LIGHT”
