2 Timothy 3:1-17
At C3, we believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the verbally inspired Words of God. The Bible was written by men who were "carried along by the Holy Spirit" (2 Peter 1:21). The Bible is free from error and without fault in its original writings. The Scriptures are "God-breathed" (2 Timothy 3:16), meaning, when the Bible speaks, God is speaking. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true, trustworthy and the final authority for faith and life (C3Rowlett.com/what-we-believe).
In your CG this week, talk about what it means to live by Scripture Alone. Spend time with this week’s Scriptures below and reflect with the following questions and prompts:
HEAR AND OBEY:
According to this week’s passages, what does the Bible say about the Bible? What do you need to believe about the Bible?
Confess to one another how you have not believed that Scripture Alone is sufficient for faith and life. What have you turned to instead for truth, wisdom, knowledge, comfort, or hope? Confess how God’s word Alone has proved sufficient.
Pray as a group. Pray:
Help us believe that what has been written has been written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. Help us live by Scripture Alone (Adapted from Romans 15:4).
