16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,17 so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
The most important book we have at our disposal is the Word of God. At The Landing we refer to it as our sword and blueprint for life. We profess every week that we can DO anything it says we can do and that we can BE all that it says we can be. I read it because ALL of it is God-breathed. God put its content on the hearts of people just like you and me so that they would write it down and we could read it and apply it to our lives. Not only is it God-breathed...it is useful. In a world full of nonsense and useless knowledge its good to know that there are still some things that are useful. The Bible is useful for teaching others and for providing information to others that can help them correct their mistakes. It's also useful in training people to grow in the wisdom and knowledge that comes from God and become fully devoted followers.
The purpose of the book is to equip you and me for EVERY good work that God has planned out ahead of time for us to be involved in. How do we know what He wants us to do? Just ask! Sounds simple but that is how you get on the path to your potential and purpose.
Are you thoroughly equipped? Could you use a refresher course? Check in to your local church this weekend and take your SWORD! I gotta feelin' that this weekends going to be a great one for you!
