Godly examples of Bible study

RE Verse reading–Psalm 119:9-16; Acts 17:10-12; 2 Timothy 3:14-17 (day six) 
“Continue in what you have learned. . . because you know those from whom you learned it.” (2 Timothy 3:14)  One reason I believe the Bible is that God has given me godly examples of people who study and obey it.  Jesus is first on the list.  Reading the New Testament, it is hard not to notice how often Jesus reflects His own confidence in Scripture.  Quoting it in temptation, referring to it in conflict, the Lord’s testimony is clear.  Scripture is the reliable voice of the Father.  Add to the Lord’s example (as if it were necessary) that of my grandmother and the people who led me to Christ and the godly professors I encountered in college and seminary.  With one voice they all declared the same truth, “All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable.” (2 Timothy 3:16) The people you respect–what do their lives teach you about the place that God’s word should have in your life?
