Authority of the Bible

In order for us to allow the words of the Bible to have authority in our lives we must first fully believe and trust them to be the actual Words of God. This comes by studying the scriptures, seeing their accuracy and as you read seeing the claims the bible makes for itself in the quotes such as “Thus says the Lord”. In the end it will take faith in God and a desire and will to follow and serve Him.

Timothy 3:16 “All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness”. The authoritative stance of the bible sets it apart and gives it impact in our lives. This view and approach is critical in our reading of God’s Word, why read it if we did not believe it is truth and from God. I would argue next to Jesus Christ the Bible or The Word is our greatest gift and we take it for granted everyday
