All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness – 2 Timothy 3:16
It’s really easy to not put that much weight on what the Bible says. You can easily think that the things in the Bible are nice concepts but it really doesn’t matter if you read it. If you’re a good person and try to do the right things, then you’re doing alright. If you buy into this, you’re selling yourself short. The Bible offers us a lot more than just words on a page.
The Bible is written by the inspiration of God. It wasn’t just some random thoughts written down and nice ideas. When it was written, it was inspired by God.
The Bible is also powerful because it corrects, instructs us and it helps us think and believe right. If we get the Bible into our hearts and lives it has the power to change us. The Bible isn’t just concepts or ideas, it’s powerful!
So don’t just let the Bible be ideas or concepts. Rather get into God’s word. Let it be a part of your everyday life. Read it daily, get the truths into your heart and see how powerful God’s word really is!
