Re:Verse passage – 2 Timothy 3:14-17 (day seven)

“All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable […] for correction.” vs 16

What we have here is a promise from God that if we are faithful to the study of His Word, it will begin to shape every part of our being. We will find ourselves questioning, wondering, and reasoning with the Scriptures as it corrects our very beliefs. This has led many people to begin to “deconstruct” their faith. Deconstruction is not in and of itself wrong as long as the deconstruction and what is being reconstructed in its place are both sourced in Scripture. The problem in many modern cases of deconstruction is that the source of both constructions are found outside of Scripture. If we use anything outside of the Word of God to prop up our faith, the structure will crumble under the weight of the smallest resistance. The majority of us do not need a full on deconstruction, but what we do need is to refortify our structure with Scripture and let God correct the areas where we have allowed the world to influence our faith.

  1. Rick,
    I always look forward to your insights. May we individually examine scripture just as you have written, so we can work better together in community. Thank you you for your leadership.

  2. I look soo forward to your devotionals each week. .I love how you expressed that we all need to check what is worldly in our study times when we just need the Word of God to clarify!
