A Firm Foundation

Faithfully Engaging The Scriptures

This Sunday, February 3, we will continue our 7-week sermon series, “A Firm Foundation.” This weeks message is “Faithfully Engaging The Scriptures,” and a key text will be 2 Timothy 3:16–17: “All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.”

Faithfully engaging Scripture is one our greatest privileges as Christ followers, so we need to take it very seriously. How do we understand the authority of God’s Word in our lives? Does God still speak to us? Absolutely, but God won’t speak to us in a way that contradicts what He has already told us in His Word. When we love Jesus, we get to love His Word, too, as the authority of both faith and practice.
