Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 November 17

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Today’s Morsel: The Bible is the most valuable book a person can own.  It teaches one how to develop character, good behavior, make right choices, and live a successful life should a person choose to obey it.  Peter said, “Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost” (2 Peter 1:20-21).  There has never been another book like the Bible, it is the inspired Word of God.  Paul said that every writing Divinely inspired is profitable for doctrine.  The Lord said through Solomon, “For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law” (Proverbs 4:2).  Paul told Timothy, “If thou put the brethren in remembrance of these things, thou shalt be a good minister of Jesus Christ, nourished up in the words of faith and of good doctrine, whereunto thou hast attained” (1 Timothy 4:6).  Doctrine teaches us how to live and how to stay saved.  Make sure you follow it and obey it.

Sing:  To worship You I live!  To worship You I live, I live to worship You. 

Thought For Today:  Doctrine still saves.
