“Every Scripture is God breathed, given by His inspiration, and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, and for training in righteousness, in holy living in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action.” 2 Timothy 3:16 Amplified
This verse is truly where the rubber meets the road. If you’re a christian then you believe that Jesus was the Son of God and that He died for you. In order to believe in Jesus you have to first believe in God. How would you believe in God without His Holy Word? As christians we believe that the Holy Bible, the scriptures, are God breathed and inspired. God used men to write the Bible like I’m using my computer write now to write this down.
So to go a step further, if we believe God wrote the Bible, then we must believe He wrote it to help us. He uses it for correction and conviction, but there’s more. He not only wants us to spend eternity with Him, He wants us to live joyfully now. His word is profitable, or a gain to us, for instruction as we live in conformity to His will in our thoughts, our purposes or intentions, and our actions.
Let God’s Holy Word breath into your life, read it, meditate on it, and let it flood over you, then you will know true joy.
