Stand Confidently On Scripture

16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. ~ 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Paul wasn’t just telling Timothy to judge others by these standards, but himself. This is not speaking just about others, but to one’s own self as well.

First, he says all Scripture is breathed out by God. Meaning Scripture is beyond dispute. It is without error, and it is 100% trustworthy because it is God-breathed. So, we are not indecisive about using Scripture. Neither are we unsure as to its accuracy.

Therefore, we are confident in using it to teach, reproof, correct, and train in righteousness. Now watch this; Paul tells us why. He says that we have Scripture so that the man of God may be complete and equipped for every good work.

It is the Scripture that we use to do all of this, not some other wannabe Scripture, but Scripture and Scripture alone. Everything we do, every offering we make, must be seasoned with salt. It must be influenced and founded on Scripture.

Too often, we get caught up in our own beliefs and opinions, and in doing so, we overlook the Word of God and twist Scripture to match what we want it to. This isn’t God’s desire for our lives. This isn’t how God intended us to use Scripture. It’s not to be twisted and taken out of context. It’s not to be changed and misquoted. Scripture is the Word of God that is a firm foundation for our lives.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Stand Confidently On Scripture.
