Some Good Stuff About The Scriptures


"His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own goodness and glory" (2 Pet.1:3).

I have heard people jokingly say; "when all else fails, read the instructions." I know some people that can put things together just by looking at them....I'm not one of those people, how about you? In a way, the Bible is our instruction manual. Today's verse gives just one example, and a good one at that. In God's Word we have everything that we need that pertains to life and godliness. Please note that it doesn't say "a few things" or "some things." It says ALL THINGS....Note also that it doesn't say we are given some things now and that we will be given the rest at a later date. "His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness!" It is so comforting to know that whatever I need to that pertains to life and godliness is just a fingertip away in His Word. Here's another piece of good stuff found in the scriptures...."Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt I had to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints" (Jude 3). Jude does not say that the faith was revealed for just that generation. He does not say that just a part was revealed and that there would be more to come. The wording is quite precise and succinct....The faith, which I perceive to mean the body of knowledge we are to believe, was delivered one time, for all time.... "contend for the faith that was once entrusted to all the saints" What a comfort to know that I don't have to search all over for some new faith to fit my desires or expectations. Our task is to contend for the faith that has been written down for us already. The instruction manual is really good....

Have a great day.... Go about doing good... Love mark Phil.4:11
