You Can Trust God's Science (30 of 40)
Series: Book You Can Trust
God has spoken. The words He spoke are God's Word the Bible.
All Scripture--is given by inspiration of God. All Scripture is profitable for doctrine. All Scripture is profitable for reproof. All Scripture is profitable for correction. All Scripture is profitable for instruction in righteousness.
God has declared that all Scripture, every word and every detail of the Bible, was given to us, supernaturally through inspiration. Inspiration means God's Word is absolutely trustworthy, because it originated from God Himself; and He is the God we can trust. Perhaps the strongest statement of inspiration is the classic verse in II Timothy 3:16. Please look there with me in your Bibles, and note this verse if you do not already know it:
"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness."
God says that His Word offers to us, four eternally beneficial guideposts:
• doctrine (God tells us what is right);
• reproof (God shows us where we are wrong),
• correction (God explains to us how to get right with Him),
• and instruction in righteousness (God teaches us how to stay right with Him).
But even though God has said that ALL of His Word is true, perhaps the most attacked portions of God's Word are those where God Himself explains the origin of the Universe and even more--the origins of mankind.
As we open to Genesis 1 this morning, we are in the midst of a look at the Absolutely Trustworthy Bible that God has written. We each need to have a firm confidence in the Bible. Absolutely, positively you and I hold in our hands and our hearts, the very Word God spoke through inspiration to His Apostles and Prophets.
The words God spoke are preserved and recorded in only one book--the Bible.
The Bible is God's Word; and the Bible is the Book you can trust.
