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

once, when i was about 20, i did a word study on the word ALL.

this was pre youversion or biblegateway.

pre computer bible.

pre bible app.

i used a concordance and a pen.

i looked up every reference to the word all.  there are a lot of them!

some were general – like “all the people went xyz”

some were challenging – like “love the Lord your God with all your heart”

and some were faith building – like “now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us”

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

in the beginning God breathed into the formation of man and gave life. 

The LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Genesis 2:7

so i love that all scripture is GOD BREATHED – it brings life, it makes us living beings, and is useful for teaching, learning, training, correction, challenging, encouraging…

HIs Word gives life.  His Word is the source of wisdom.  His Word is the pattern we should follow in living our lives.

ALL scripture.  yes even Leviticus.  i believe the Bible is the instruction and life giving words of God.  though i may not understand it all, though it may be a mystery, i bow myself down and surrender to it knowing it is God’s truth.  i consent that my flesh wants to reject it and live my own pattern.
