2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” We believe Scripture is authoritative in the life of the believer not because it is endorsed by a human being but because God authenticates Himself through Scripture. God reveals Himself through the Scripture that speaks of Him. Therefore, Scripture is essential for knowledge of God and knowing the living person of God. Scripture also helps us to discern Truth (of God) and through Scripture, the Spirit (God himself) changes and forms the lives of believers. For these reasons, God’s people come to delight in Scripture and meditate on it day and night. It is foundational for the Christian to study the Bible to know and love the Lord.
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.
~ 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (ESV)
