"All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work."
What does that mean? How does that work?
Mmm. Consider these examples -
We live in a culture that teaches us to worship the god of wealth, materialism, greed and money.
Yet the Bible teaches: "For what does it profit a person to gain the whole world and love their very soul?" (Mark 8:36)
We live in a world where we are tempted to worship the god fame, power, prestige and celebrity.
Yet the Bible offers reproof, "The first shall be last and the last first." (Mark 10:31)
We live in a society that teaches us to look out for #1, to worship the god of selfishness.
And yet the Bible corrects: "It is more blessed to give than recieve." (Acts 20:35)
We live in an age when we worship the god of lust and pleasure, believing that anything that feels good must be good.
But the Bible offers training in right living: "Do you not know that you body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, which you have from God? You are not your own; you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body." (I Cor. 6:19-20)
In short, because the Bible is "breathed of God," it is always relevant for life.
Put it to the test and find out for yourself!
