Sufficiency of Scripture

“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV) All that we need is in scripture, it is sufficient for our salvation and to our walks with Christ. Yet here’s the challenge to that… “The secret things belong to the LORD our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.” (Deuteronomy 29:29 ESV).

So then are we content to say I will let the Bible be what God gave it to be? And when we don’t understand we go to His Word and prepare ourselves to hear what the Word says and to be okay if it doesn’t answer our question fully or to our likening. Although other teachers may inspire us, we must never rely on their teachings alone, but compare all to the Bible and it’s full truth.
