“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. ”-2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NKJV)
The Bible is the inspired Word of God. Some people go through great lengths just to try and hear from the Lord. Some think a person must attend some kind of retreat, attend some grand conference, or buy the latest Christian book. None of those things are bad, BUT the primary way that we hear from Christ and understand who He is through diligent study of the Word.
Today we have translations from the original languages in those that we can comprehend. It is God’s Word; just translated into our language. You can study the Word effectively. This requires the right teaching and resources, but most of all a heart that hungers for God’s truth above all else. Let the light of God’s Word convict, correct, console, and protect you in this dark world!
