Good morning all,
The word of the day is “chthonian.” I’ve studied Scripture for quite a few years. I remember when I was brand-new in the faith. Everything was so exciting. I had questions about everything. I remember talking to my mentor about every little detail in the Bible, and it was pretty awesome time. Because I went to Christian school I was able to continue this fervor. Then I went to seminary, also known as pastor school, which helped me to keep my interest in Scripture. And, just when I thought I could not get more excited, I remember hearing the following verse at my pastoral ordination ceremony.
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness…” ~2 Tim 3:16
This was a pretty big deal for me to hear. I realized that the word of God was more than just chthonian, or some kind of mythology… it was the real and inspired word of God. I was given the task as a pastor to faithfully teach and administer the stuff that I had been learning for so many years. My question is: what kind of authority have you given God’s word in your life? My prayer is that you seek a life of righteousness, always doing more than is required to love others and be an active participant in God’s incredible plan for your life.
Praying for you,
