BCL Grow: Breathed Out by God — 2 Timothy 3:16
2 Timothy 3:16 (Revelation)
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness. — 2 Timothy 3:16
“The Holy Spirit is committed to working through the word. God promises to bless the reading and teaching of his word. The sheep will hear their Master’s voice speaking to them in the word (cf. John 10:27).” — Kevin DeYoung, Taking God At His Word: Why the Bible is Knowable, Necessary, and Enough, and What That Means for You and Me, p. 24.
Steps to Take
1. Consider: How do you expect to hear God’s voice today? What is the regular way we learn about God’s will for our lives?
2. Remember: God revealed himself to his people in the Old Testament through prophets, and in the New Testament God revealed himself through Jesus and the teaching of the apostles. Now we have everything we need communicated to us for life as God’s people as it regards to holy living through the written word of God as it is properly taught.
3. Rejoice: God has left a deposit of his revelation for his people that is trustworthy and applicable today. Strive to read, listen and understand God’s word by the power of the Holy Spirit.
