Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another – showing us truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped for the tasks God has for us.
2Timothy 3:16-17 The Message

Scripture is the very word of God. He alone – by the power of His Spirit – reveals its meaning to Believers.

The Spirit-led revelation of His Word equips His people for spiritual battle, nourishes them spiritually, and provides guidance for life. It’s a work we cannot do on our own.

For no prophecy was ever produced by the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.
2Peter 1:21 ESV

Reflect on your experiences reading the Bible. What three words come to mind?
Now consider how you approach God’s Word: Do you try to make sense of it yourself? Or do you prayerfully seek understanding from God by the power of the Holy Spirit?
