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, 17 that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. #Bible
If there ever was or is an argument for reading and studying the Word of God, the Holy Bible, from cover to cover, this one verse is it.
First it is God Breathed. It proceeded out of the very Mouth of God Himself. It would be wise to recognize, and realize that important point.
Then it is profitable, not for some, but everyone. Also for teaching, it is profitable for everyone to be taught.
For reproof, or correction, it is great, and worthy, for making course adjustments, and any other corrections needed in this life's path, walking with God.
Yes we all need to be trained in righteousness, to know what is acceptable to our God.
In all of the Bible's teachings, so that we can be competent in all the good we do, even our service to our Holy God and Father.
If we love our Father God don't we wish to please Him in everything we do? Then we desperately need the Word of God, the Bible, our instruction manual for this life in righteousness - right standing with God.
