2 Timothy 3
Music: Mack Brock

2 Timothy 3:14-15 NKJV
[14] But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, [15] and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 NKJV
[16] All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, [17] that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Knowledge is knowing tomatoes are a fruit, wisdom is not putting them in your fruit salad.

You greatest role in God’s kingdom may not be what you do but who you raise.

Point 1. God’s Word is holy 

How you treat the scriptures is how you treat God!

The Bible doesn’t save us, Jesus does.

2 Timothy 3:16 NKJV
[16] All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

Point 2. God’s Word is inspired 

All scripture is God breathed.

When you read the word of God, you are inhaling what God has exhaled.

Every book, verse, word, and promise in the Bible is the breath of God.

If you couldn’t trust all of the Bible the, you couldn’t trust any of the Bible.

How is the Bible proven true:
1. Manuscripts
Over 24,000 manuscripts.

The Dead Sea Scrolls have every book except Esther.

2. Unity
The message is the same over all books and over the 1500 years it was written.

3. Prophecy 
27% of the Bible is prophecy.

Many prophecies have been fulfilled 

4.Archaeology 

No discovery has ever contradicted the Bible.

5.Science

Science is slowly catching up with the truth in the Bible.

Some of the greatest scientists will admit the more they know the more they believe in God.

Point 3. God’s Word is Profitable 

Doctrine: what is right
Reproof: What is not right
Correction: How to get right
Instruction: How to stay right

1. Commit to daily devotions. 
Equivalent to not eating or drinking and complaining you are weak.

2. Make a plan

The best Bi Le reading plan is the one you actually use!

3. Choose a place and time

Be consistent 

4. Don’t just read - study.

Invest in a good study Bible

5. Begin with Prayer

6. Use a helpful translation 

The best translation to use is the one you can understand and get something out of.

7. Eliminate distractions 

Give God your undivided attention.

8. Sign up for Harvest Small Groups.
