BE INSPIRED ANYWHERE
Pastor Steve Lummer
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: – 2 Timothy 3:16 (King James Version)
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, – 2 Timothy 3:16 (New International Version)
The whole Bible was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives; it straightens us out and helps us do what is right. – 2 Timothy 3:16 (Living Bible)
There are so many versions of the Bible …..So?

A FIVE FINGER WAY TO GET A GRIP ON THE BIBLE.
1. READ IT. – Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near. (NIV)
2. HEAR IT. – So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. (NKJV)
3. STUDY IT. – Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV)
4. MEMORIZE IT. – you are a letter from Christ, written by us. It is not a letter written with pen and ink, but by the Spirit of the living God; not one carved on stone, but in human hearts. 2 Corinthians 3:3
5. MEDITATE ON IT. – Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Joshua 1:8 – (NIV)
So this year, as you read God’s Word ask 3 questions
1. What did it mean back then?
2. What does it mean right now?
3. What does it mean to me personally?
