All Scripture is inspired by God, and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 (HCSB)
Note from Kip…
God’s Word is amazing! There is nothing like it to compare it to. Scripture allows us to infuse the heart of God into our minds and souls. It provides the raw materials for the Holy Spirit to produce good in us, even when we are not capable of that good of our own will. It convicts us, grows us and nurtures us to be the kinda of God’s Children that reflect His light to a dark world.
Finding something interesting to read is never an issue, so long as we seek the mind of God as our direction in life; from His Word!
When all has been heard, the conclusion of the matter is: fear God and keep His commands, because this is for all humanity. For God will bring every act to judgment, including every hidden thing, whether good or evil.
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 (HCSB)
Together with Christ Jesus He also raised us up and seated us in the heavens, so that in the coming ages He might display the immeasurable riches of His grace through His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:6-7 (HCSB)
Now the goal of our instruction is love that comes from a pure heart, a good conscience, and a sincere faith.
1 Timothy 1:5 (HCSB)
For whatever was written in the past was written for our instruction, so that we may have hope through endurance and through the encouragement from the Scriptures.
Romans 15:4 (HCSB)
Therefore, since we have been declared righteous by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. We have also obtained access through Him by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. And not only that, but we also rejoice in our afflictions, because we know that affliction produces endurance, endurance produces proven character, and proven character produces hope.
This hope will not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
Romans 5:1-5 (HCSB)
Therefore, no condemnation now exists for those in Christ Jesus,, because the Spirit’s law of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.
