“Read your Bible.” This is a common instruction in Christian circles—but do we stop to consider the reason for it? While it’s always helpful to be reminded of our need for biblical truth, it’s also vital to consider Scripture’s authority. The apostle Paul’s passion was to help followers of Christ understand not only the usefulness of studying God’s Word and hearing it preached but also the foundation for doing so.
In this series from 2 Timothy, Alistair Begg affirms that Scripture is trustworthy and examines how God has purposed it to be a guide and an agent of change in the Christian walk. As followers of Christ, we are called to be dependent on God’s Word because it is spiritual food that will sustain the soul. Pastors, teachers, and congregations must commit to the priority of the Bible. God’s Word contains God’s very own words, which are His provision for living in a way that is pleasing to Him.
