Inspired By God
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
Read 2 Timothy Chapter 3
The Word of God is literally inspired by His heart; He is the author of the Bible. Every page of the Bible bears the thoughts and intents of God our Father. This is why Calvary Chapels place such an emphasis on God's Word and the importance of learning it and hiding it in our hearts. God's Word is profitable for doctrine, meaning within its pages are the very principles for living the Christian life. God's Word corrects us when we are wrong or in sin, and brings us back to the place of abiding in Christ. God's Word gives us the instructions we need for righteous living. The inspired Word of God speaks to us when no one else will. It cuts to the very heart of the matters of this life. For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of the soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Heb. 4:12) God's Word gives us the ability to believe God for the impossible and helps us to build our faith. So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. (Rom. 10:17) We should seek out the Word of God because it is His very voice that speaks to us. No wonder the prophet Jeremiah found God's Word to be his life-giving sustenance. Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart. (Jer. 15:16)

Prayer: Father, keep us ever so close to Your Word.
