Bible Week – Day 2 – The Daily Scriptures

Daily Passage

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching the truth, rebuking error, correcting faults, and giving instruction for right living, so that the person who serves God may be fully qualified and equipped to do every kind of good deed. (2 Timothy 3.16-17 GNT)

Teaching

All of Scripture is useful. It is reliable. It will help us in real, practical ways. It helps equip us for life. This is the main claim that the Bible makes about itself and it is as essential today as it was when written to Timothy. Unfortunately, many Canadians believe the opposite: that the Bible is irrelevant.

As servants of God we are marked by our desire to hear from God. God answers this desire by speaking to us through the Bible. When we set Scripture aside as irrelevant, we are missing out not only on useful teaching, but also on many opportunities to individually and communally hear God speak to us.

Examination

Do you believe that the Bible is relevant to your life? When you read it, how much do you use it for “every kind of good deed”?

React

Pray for the Holy Spirit to speak to you through Scripture each time you read it. If you are struggling to see the usefulness of Scripture, look for a community that will help you see and apply these teachings to your life.
