Friday Quote

>> Friday, March 7, 2008


All scripture is given by inspiration of God,
and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof,
for correction, for instruction in righteousness
2 Timothy 2:16


I like that...."all scripture" ...the whole Word of God... has been given to us that we may grow into perfection....which is actually maturity. I want the "whole" not just "part" of God's Word to train me in righteousness.

If God's Word is truly God's Word...which it is...then we better believe the Bible as a whole and not just in part. We don't have a right to pick apart and decide what we believe and what we don't. It's all God's Word.

I can see where this could turn into an interesting post....for another time.

Let me leave you with this thought: Do you simply believe what someone has told you concerning the Word of God, or what you learned in church, or what is written in your church doctrine, etc.? Have you taken those beliefs to the Word of God? Have you asked God for wisdom and revelation and understanding in His Truth? The Bible should be our plumb line for measuring all truth, should it not? Let's not be as little children in the sense that we allow others to spoon feed us whatever they want. Let's rise up and choose truth and see what God's Word says about living a mature Christian life so that our lives can bring Glory unto Him in all we do and say.

Hmmmm....more on that at another time. Blessings on your day.

We spent hours yesterday at the Christian bookstore...researching a few reference books to get...as we as a family, dive into his word to see what HE has to say!!!
