37:9<>+8>orh )%1*E Russ Holmes, Pastor to Small Groups November 7 - 8, 2010 Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-12 - Ezra reads the Book of The Law to the people

There are 6 things that help us see the authority of the Bible and why it is important. THEY ARE: 1. It is ________________________________ by God and it is ________________________________ for life. (God breathed, and for our instruction) 2 Tim. 3:16-17 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2. It is the very ________________________________ of God. (God spoke through men who were set apart for His work) 2 Samuel 23:2 The Spirit of the LORD spoke through me; his word was on my tongue. Jeremiah 1:9 Then the LORD reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have put my words in your mouth.â&#x20AC;&#x153;

3. It is ________________________________ and it lasts ________________________________. (It is the only rule of faith and practice) Psalm 111:7-8 The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy. They are established for ever and ever, enacted in faithfulness and uprightness. Psalm 119:89 Your word, LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.

4. It is Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ________________________________ for life to mankind (It is to be appropriated and lived out by believers). 1 Thes. 2:13 And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as a human word, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is indeed at work in you who believe.

5. Its prophecies will all be ________________________________. Matthew 5:18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Matthew 24:35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

6. The theme that unites the entire Bible is that man might have ________________________________ through ________________________________ , the Son of God (Who He is and His death, burial and resurrection that paid for our sins). John 20:31 But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

ALSO READ:

I Peter 1:24-25 â&#x20AC;&#x153;For, â&#x20AC;&#x153;All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of the Lord stands forever.â&#x20AC;? And this is the word that was preached to you.â&#x20AC;? Psalm 119:105 â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your Word is a lamp for my feet and a light on my path.â&#x20AC;?
