16 All scripture is given by the spirit of YHWH, and is profitable for doctrine (teaching the truth), for reproof (rebuking error), for correction (correcting faults), for instruction in righteousness (giving instruction for right living).2 Timothy 3:16-17
17 That the man of God may be fully qualified and equipped to do every kind of good deed.
For the scripture to work in our lives, we have to believe that the scripture is:
- given by the Spirit of God;
- profitable for
- teaching the truth,
- rebuking error,
- correcting faults,
- giving instructions for right living
- so that we can be fully qualified and equipped to do every kind of good deed.
Without that belief, it would be hard for us to learn from the scripture and live life according to what our Lord commands.
