The Gift of His Word
2 Timothy 3:16
All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.
God has given us the gift of His Word
Standing in front of a blank canvas, or staring at a blank screen on your computer can be a bit daunting. Imagine what it was like in Genesis 1 verse 2: "The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters." ....a blank slate. The very next verse starts with..."Then God said,..."
He spoke. His Word started it all. The creation story is magnificent! The power of His words formed the heavens and earth, the day and the night, the creatures on land and in the sea and those that fly in the air. All the trees and vegetation....spoken into existence. When God created Adam He spoke His plan when He said "Let us make man in our image," formed him from the ground and then...God breathed HIS breath of life into Adam. What an extraordinary treasure to know that we have the breath of our Creator inside of us!
And God has continued to teach us, to lead us and inspire us through all the generations by His Word. 2 Timothy 3:16 (NLT) clearly reveals this, "All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right."
God has given us the incredible gift of His Word.
