Scripture Is Useful

2
Timothy 3:16-17 (NLT)

All
Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make
us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and
teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to
do every good work.
Most
mornings I use Biblegateway.com’s verse of the day for my reflections.  I love that ever since I published this blog,
the daily verses have been about the importance of Scripture.  Truly there are no coincidences.  God is affirming our need to put His Word
into our hearts and lives.
All
Scripture is inspired by God.  We could
probably have a great discussion about the authority of God’s Word.  Yes, it was written by man and a group of men
decided which writings to include in our Bible. 
Folks will always debate which teachings are for all time and which were
specific to the particular time and culture.
However,
after much Bible study, I believe God used these men to communicate His Word.   It is
Truth.  If you stumble on the first
phrase, try reading today’s scripture as ‘All Scripture is useful to teach us
what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives.’  Yup. 
It sure does.  We just don’t always
like the correction part.
God
uses Scripture to prepare and equip us to do every good work.  Let’s get to know God’s Word so we can base
our lives in Truth and be ready for Him to use us.  Are you in?
