2 Timothy 3: 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 perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.


The scripture we hear preached each week are not fables but the very word of God.  When we hear the word preached, we should receive it “not as the word of men, but as it is in truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe.” (1 Thess 2: 13)  When taught doctrine, learn; when reproved, submit; when corrected, repent; when instructed in righteousness, obey. The word grows the man of God, throughly furnishing us unto all good works. If God is working effectually in us then we will hear God’s word and live it!
