The Bible is clear: God has spoken. We believe this means we must trust and preach his word. But ultimately, no matter what we believe, we must be the kind of believers who practice God's word. In 2 Tim. 3:10-15, we see Paul's example to Timothy, which is a reminder of what we must continue to do in order to practice the word.
Preaching involves more than just the preacher. There could be no preaching without the hearers. In 2 Timothy 4:1-4 we find instructions for preaching and hearing but also reasons why we must preach the word.
If it can be proven that God has spoken his will, there are important implications. Today we start a short series of lessons exploring those implications. In this lesson, we consider important reasons we must trust God's word since we know God has spoken. Our text is 2 Tim. 3:16-17, one of the bedrock passages of Scripture about Scripture.
