Sermon Notes

Study Habits Part 2, “God-breathed” 2 Timothy 3:10-17 We continue our series this morning, Study Habits. Last Sunday we introduced three values driven by Personal Bible Study: 1. Show Love 2. Strengthen Faith 3. Distinguish False Teachings Particularly, the strengthening of Faith is central to how anyone receives the validity or value of God’s inspired Word. The man without the Spirit

does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. (1 Corinthians 2:14) This morning we will take a deeper dive into the validity of scripture and the assurance we should take that it is “God-breathed.”

Theopneustos is the Greek word found in 2 Timothy 3 that is translated to mean: God-breathed, inspired by God or due to the inspiration of God. Although 2 Timothy 3:16 may be the only place in the Bible where the phrase “God-breathed” is used to describe the Word of God, Scripture is riddled with similar claims. As you sit down for your own personal bible study this week, here are some additional scriptures of interest:      

Genesis 2:7 John 20:22 2 Peter 1:21 2 Peter 3:15-16 Acts 17:11 James 1:17


Keep Them in Your Prayers We express our sympathy to Bobo & Leslie Sitton and their family in the passing of Leslie’s grandmother, Audrey Kathleen Ledbetter. Her funeral was Friday in Jackson, TN. Due to the privacy act it is sometimes difficult to get information regarding our members that are in the hospital, so if you have information regarding anyone on our sick list, please let the office know.
