* Mind – To understand, make sense and logic.

* Heart – To exercise faith.

 

* Problem of Contemporary Christianity – Not studying deeply Problem of Contemporary Christianity – Not studying deeply into who God is through His word.

* Ignorant of “Self”. Therefore, need all kinds of self-motivation and self-belief encouragement.

* Unable to feed the sheep of God.

 

Read <2 Ti 3:14-17>

14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 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.

 

* Main Battle Cry of Reformation: Supremacy of the Scripture.

* Only the Scripture can bind the conscience of men.

* What is infallible and mutable (traditions, practices, laws of the land, etc) cannot absolutely bind the conscience of men.

 

 

The Scripture is the Inspired, Infallible and Inerrant word of God.

1) Inspired

2) Infallible

3) Inerrant

 

Profit from careful study of the Bible.

1) Teaching ⟹ Doctrine ⟹ Worldview

2) Rebuking (Or Reproving) ⟹ exposes our sin

3) Correction ⟹ Turn us from false belief and living

4) Training in righteousness ⟹ complete, equipped for every good work

 

Continue to study the Scripture

1) Continue in the scripture amidst temptations and trials

* Paul said: “Continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures”.

2) Start Young
