Today’s Lesson: God’s Word
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
“God has chosen by his matchless grace to give us revelation of himself in his Word. It is the only Book that he has promised to bless by his Spirit to transform you and me into the image of Jesus Christ. It is the only Book that he has promised to use to bring our hearts, our minds, and our lives in alignment with him. I’m not saying that God has not used or blessed other books throughout Christian history, but there is only on Book that he has perfectly inspired by his Spirit for the accomplishment of his purpose. When you or I open the Bible, we beholding the very Words of God – words that have supernatural power to redeem, renew, refresh, and restore our lives to what he created them to be.
That is why I believe it is more important for you and me to read Leviticus that it is for us to read the best Christian book ever published, because Leviticus has a quality and produces an effect that no book in the Christian marketplace can compete with. If we want to know the glory of God, if we want to experience the beauty of God, and if we want to be used by the hand of God, then we must live in the Word of God.” – Dr. David Platt, Radical – Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream
As you continue to fast and pray during this season, take these words to heart and focus on the Word of God as never before!
