Every part of Scripture is
God-breathed and useful one way
or another—showing us truth,
exposing our rebellion,
correcting our mistakes,
training us to live God's way.
Through the Word
we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.
2 Timothy 3:16 & 17 ( The Message Bible)
I just love coming across words or phrases that are so pictureque or poetic. When I came across this one phrase, "every part of Scripture is God-breathed", I was amazed at all that those simple words said. I already believed that the Bible is God's Word to me and you and meant to help us everyday. But that phrase instantly reminded me that they were more then just words on a page.
The New Kings James version puts that phrase this way..."All Scripture is given by inspiration of God". I am amazed that He cared enough about us to give us these words and all that they were meant to impart.
