An Efficacy

It is a great thing to be brought up on the Holy Scriptures.  No other book can do for a life, what the Bible can do. It is able to make one wise in the best way for salvation through faith in Jesus.

The Word of God has in it an efficacy which no other book in the world has!

It is profitable for doctrine, instructing in holy things, the things of God and eternal life.

It is profitable for reproof, convicting us of sin and declaring God's judgment against evil.

It is profitable for correction, not only showing us our faults, but leading us away from them, freeing our lives from errors and making straight what was crooked.

It is profitable for instruction in righteousness, telling us how God would have us live, what qualities of character He would have us attain.

One who is trained under the tuition of the Scriptures will come to be a complete Christian, furnished for usefulness and prepared for doing whatever good work he may be called to do.

[J. R. Miller]


2 Timothy 3:15-17 ...  And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.  All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.❤
