What do the seven churches have to do with you? Watch this video then join us in looking at the 7 churches of Asia (Revelation 1-3) to use their evaluation as a springboard for ours!
2 Timothy 3:15-17 lets us know how important ALL of the scripture is for everyone who wants to be saved and pleasing to God. It says:
15 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. 16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
ALL scripture comes from God, and the benefits of getting the Word, hearing the Word, believing the Word, and obeying the Word of God are endless! Specifically, we find in this passage that the Word of God, the holy scriptures (including the messages to 7 churches) are, PROFITABLE for four areas:
- DOCTRINE — The Word of God teaches us so we can learn God’s will and God’s ways.
- REPROOF – The Word of God gives evidence, scriptural proof to convict us when we are wrong.
- CORRECTION – The Word of God can straighten you out and help you get right.
- INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS – The Word of God outlines how to live right so you don’t have to go the wrong way anymore!
It’s certainly time to get in the Word, to dig into and then apply the scriptures. God gave John one book written to 7 churches, and it (like all scripture) is profitable, helpful, to the church today.
