I Love My Church - Scripture

Psalm 119:105

Your word is a lamp to my feet

    and a light to my path.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God (Messenger of God) may be complete, equipped for every good work.

BIG IDEA: How do I get something out of the Bible?

O.T. = Hebrew Bible

God’s Savior is COMING

N.T. = Greek

God’s Savior WAS HERE, IS HERE and IS COMING AGAIN

BIG IDEA:

“The goal of reading the Bible is not information, but transformation.” Mark Moore

Hebrews 4:12-13

For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable.

“How Do I Get Something Out of the Bible?”

1. PICK A “FRIENDLY” TRANSLATION

 

2. CHAIR TIME

Psalm 119:11

NLT

I have hidden your word in my heart,

    that I might not sin against you.

 

MSG

I’ve banked your promises in the vault of my heart

    so I won’t sin myself bankrupt.

 

Gregg R. Allison

“The purpose of the Bible is to instruct non-believers in the way of Salvation and to prepare Believers for every good work so as to fully please God.”

 


3. GOD’S WORD IS TRUTH

 

Road to Emmaus / Easter Day …

Luke 24:27 NLT

Then Jesus took them through the writings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.

4. GOD’S WORD “SMELLS” LIKE GOD

 

2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God (Messenger of God) may be complete, equipped for every good work.

“The Word of God is the simple truth that holds us together in the midst of complex situations.”

COMMUNION

 

Matthew 28:18-20

Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
