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

Observation –
Paul is exhorting Timothy to remain in the Scriptures as they are the Word of God, inerrant and infallible. As Timothy leads the church, Scripture is where sounds teaching originates. When someone is not walking in the path of righteousness, Scripture is where to turn and base correction .
The Word of God equips and completes a believer for God’s work.

Application-
The Bible is the holy inspired Word of God and needs to be my playbook for life. That Scripture is breathed out by God gives me encouragement to know His Word is true. Any teaching that I listen to must be expositional from the Bible as it allows the hearer to gain in wisdom. On the contrary, teaching which deviates from Scripture is not sound and can be damaging. Therefore, I must be in the Word to know the Word. The Word along with the action of the Spirit is what will convict us to move toward Christ in our walk.

Prayer –

Father,
Thank you for the truth in your Word and this passage that shows the usefulness of Scripture to teach and correct. Let the power of the Spirit guide me in wisdom to know your word and live it out.
